NDC’s seats in Parliament rise to 137 after candidate wins Sene West

The candidate contesting for the Member of Parliament for the NDC, Kwame Twumasi Ampofo has won the Sene West seat by 16 votes after a recounting of ballot papers and collation of results for over a week after the general election.

Mr. Twumasi Ampofo managed to poll 13,116 and Joseph Markay Kuma of the New Patriotic Party also polled (NPP) 13,100 votes.

On the other hand, Ceasar Fomekah of the National Democratic Party(NDP) was placed third with191 votes, and 660 votes were rejected.

The counting was supervised by EC officers in the company of Dan Kwaku Botwe of the NPP and NDC General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, many others.

The NPP representatives called for a re-collation of the results with delaying the certification.

Sene West is the only outstanding seat in the Parliamentary elections which has seen the NPP win 137 seats in Parliament while the NDC won 136 seats.

The Sene West election results were delayed due to Mr. Kuma’s injunction against the election results over claims of irregularities with the electoral process.
