This was after some political parties protested the normal way the EC uses to select positions on the ballot paper.

During that exercise, Akua Donkor's GFP was the first to pick with NPP coming fourth and NDC picking the eighth position.

After that was done, the real positioning for the slots on the ballot paper began with reps of the various political parties being made to pick a folded sheet with hidden numbers written on them.
