NPP Elects Female Teacher to contest Abuakwa North By-Election

Members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Abuakwa North Constituency of the Eastern Region, have elected Mrs. Gifty Twum Ampofo, a tutor of the Akosombo International School, to lead the party in the upcoming by-election in the area.

The by-election was necessitated by the death of Member of Parliament for the constituency, Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu, who was murdered at his Accra home in February, 2016.

Mrs. Gifty Twum Ampofo won the primary with 207 votes after beating her two contenders, Kyei Brobbey and Isaac Osei Ampadu, who had 27 and 104 votes respectively.

345 delegates voted in Tuesday’s exercise.

The Electoral Commission has set Tuesday, March 29, 2016, to conduct the by-election in the constituency.

The Electoral Commission had announced that it will receive nominations for the election on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 1 and 2nd respectively at the District Office of the Commission at Tafo in the Eastern Region.

Meanwhile, the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) already has a parliamentary candidate for the 2016 election in the person of Mr Anthony Osei Gyimah but it is unclear whether  he will contest in the March 29th by-election.
