Elections could not take place in five constituencies early this year, due to some unresolved problems and other issues which bordered on security, therefore they cannot participate in the regional election.

The constituencies are Yunyoo, Bimbila, Daboya/Manakarigu, Nalerigu/Gambaga and Karaga.

The chairmanship race is a two-horse race between incumbent Mr Naabu and Alhaji Mohammed A. Baantima Samba. Others in the chairmanship race are Ahaji Abdallah Hindu, Alhaji Musigu Sibawey and Amadu Inusah Dagomba.
