With votes from all polling stations counted and collated, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) candidate in the Ejisu Parliamentary by-election, Kwabena Boateng, has been declared the Member of Parliament-elect.

Results from all 204 polling stations showed that lawyer Kwabena Boateng received 27,782 votes from the total valid votes cast, representing 55.8%.

Ing. Kwabena Owusu Aduomi, the independent parliamentary candidate, secured 21,543 votes (43.3%).

The other candidates in the by-election — Esther Osei of the CPP, Beatrice Boakye of the LPG, and independents Gabriel Agyemang Joseph and Attakorah Joseph — collectively accounted for less than 1% of the votes.

The outcome means the NPP has retained a seat it held after winning it through the late John Kumah in 2020.
