A total of 61 votes was required for an outright win in the first round of voting but that target was not reached and there will now be a second round.

Per the rules, candidates with the least number of votes that is Amanda Clinton and George Ankomah Mensah drop out of the second round.

However, Fred Pappoe has also opted out leaving Kurt Okraku, George Afriyie and Nana Yaw Amponsah to contest the runoff.

120 delegates members are being polled in Accra to find a successor to Kwesi Nyantakyi, who had been in the post since 2005, but resigned last year after he was implicated in Anas Number 12 documentary.
