This trend of affair made the elections to be postponed for a week but that also could not come off on the scheduled day as the Brong Ahafo Regional Minister in a speech on that day called for the postponement of the elections due to some security threat and was reschedule for the next day after three government appointees have been sworn in to replace some other three who were withdrawned.
The next day saw another election to be conducted by the electoral commission and the Presiding member of the assembly Hon. John Dadzi in a speech called on the members to put partisan politics aside of the elections and think of the general development of the District after which the Regional representative of the Electoral commission also spelt out the modalities of the elections.
