The new regions will be deemed to be created when at least 50 per cent of the persons entitled to vote do so in each of the different referenda, and of the votes cast, at least 80 per cent are in favour of the creation of a region.

The Electoral Commission (EC) will hold a referendum on Thursday, December 27, 2018, to determine the creation of the proposed new regions as recommended by the Brobbey Commission of Inquiry.

The Constitution requires that 50% of all eligible voters turn out to vote on the day with YES votes, constituting 80% of votes cast, and therefore appealed to residents to ensure relations who have travelled are encouraged to return for the historic vote.
