Mr Affail Monney has been re-elected as president of the Ghana Journalists Association in Friday’s poll for another three-year term.

He polled 310 votes out of the total 505 votes to beat his closest rival Lloyd Evans who garnered 147 votes.

A third candidate, Jonny Aryeetey polled 44 votes.

Meanwhile, Mr Aryeetey has threatened to go to court to annul the election.

It emerged that the name of former President, John Dramani Mahama, replaced that of Mr Aryeetey on the GJA voters list.

Mr Mahama’s name appeared at No. 138 on the register, a spot meant for Mr Aryeetey, whose camp described the situation as “strange”.

Reacting to the development in an interview with Class News during, Mr Aryeetey’s said: “We trusted the system but they have made us understand that we misplaced our trust. 95 per cent of the staff in the GBC TV newsroom, including those who have won awards in the last two or three years, we are being told they don’t qualify to vote.

“We will meet them in court. I have handed the matter over to my lawyer.”
