The By-Election: Residents in Kumawu Choose a New MP Today


Voters in Kumawu, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, are currently participating in a by-election to select a new Member of Parliament for the area. This electoral event has been triggered by the unfortunate passing of the former lawmaker, Phillip Basoah, earlier this year. With the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) vying for the parliamentary seat, the competition has intensified.

Candidates and Preparations

The by-election features prominent candidates such as Akwasi Amankwaa, also known as ‘Tom Cee,’ representing the NDC, and Ernest Yaw Anim from the NPP. Additionally, two independent candidates named Kwaku Duah are also in the running. Recognizing the significance of the event, the Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, held a meeting with leaders from both major political parties to ensure a smooth process.

Political Influence

Both President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and former President John Dramani Mahama have actively engaged in rallying support for their respective parties’ candidates. President Akufo-Addo has encouraged voters to rally behind the NPP candidate, while Mahama is making a strong case for the NDC. Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has joined the campaign, urging New Patriotic Party supporters to turn out in large numbers and demonstrate the party’s stronghold in Kumawu.

As the by-election takes place in Kumawu, residents have the opportunity to shape the political landscape of their constituency by electing a new Member of Parliament. With the NPP and NDC investing considerable efforts to secure victory, the outcome will have implications for the representation and governance of the area. The results will be closely watched by political observers, as they reflect the preferences and aspirations of the people in Kumawu.
