Who wins Ejisu by-election?

In a tightly contested race following the passing of Member of Parliament and Deputy Finance Minister Dr. John Ampontuah Kumah on March 7, 2024, Mr. Boateng emerged victorious despite a low voter turnout.

The by-election saw a spirited campaign, especially between Mr. Boateng and Mr. Aduomi, the latter being a former three-time NPP Member of Parliament for the constituency who ran as an Independent Candidate.

During the campaigning, allegations of vote buying were leveled against Boateng's campaign, leading to scrutiny and action from the Electoral Commission. 

In response to these allegations, the Commission removed two temporary staff members after a viral video allegedly showed them accepting a bribe during the Ejisu by-election.

Notably, other candidates in the race included Beatrice Boakye of the Liberal Party with 140 votes (0.3%), Esther Osei of the Convention People’s Party with 0.2%, Independent Candidate Joseph Agyemang with 222 votes (0.2%), and Atakora Joseph with 23 votes (0.0%).
