The Cape Coast South Constituency of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has finally had its election after it was suspended for several weeks due to a court injunction.

Aggrieved persons who challenged the qualification of Alex Hagan, one of the candidates for the chairmanship position agreed to settle the matter out of court.

The party managed to withdraw the case from court on Friday 23rd March, paving way for the elections on Sunday 25th March.

The completion of Cape Coast South brings to 21 out of 23 constituencies which have successfully held their elections.

Two other constituencies still have issues in court. They are Ajumako Enyan Essiam and Ewutu Senya West.
