“We are in this together. The campaigning begins from today. Let us all put ourselves together and go out there and face Delali Brimpong. We have done it before, we can do it again. We are retaining this seat together.”
The seat became vacant following the passing of the Member of Parliament for the area, Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko, on Wednesday, November 21.
The NPP has held this seat since 2000 but Delali Kwasi Brempong of the New Democratic Congress (NDC) will be hoping to cause an upset in what has become an NPP stronghold.
NDC delegates elected Delali Kwasi Brempong, a former Parliamentary candidate in its primary on Friday, December 28.
Delali Kwasi Brempong overcame Ekwow Acquah and Madam Donna Selassie Agbo.
He polled 415 votes, while Selassie Agbo and former constituency secretary Ekow Acquah got 115 and 119 votes respectively.
The Electoral Commission will open and receive the nominations for the by-election from Thursday, January 10 to Saturday, January 12, 2019.
