New Patriotic Party (NPP) candidate, Mrs. Gifty Twum Ampofo, has been declared the winner of the Abuakwa North by-election held today, March 29, 2016.

She polled a total of 10,033 which represent 89.60% of valid votes cast to beat her two contestants, Samuel Frimpong of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) and Isaac Kwartey of the United Front Party (UFP).

The GFP candidate polled 263 representing 2.35% while the UFP candidate polled 901 representing 8.05%.

The ruling  National Democratic Congress (NDC) decided not to field a candidate in the by-election which became necessary after the  Member of Parliament (MP) for the constituency, J.B Danquah-Adu was gruesomely murdered.
