A total of 1081 delegates participated in the primary to determine the NPP’s candidate for the forthcoming by-election in the Ejisu Constituency.

However, the process was marred by allegations of vote buying, double voting, and some delegates attempting to capture screenshots of their cast ballots.

The party conducted the parliamentary primary following the passing of the Member of Parliament for Ejisu, John Ampontuah Kumah.

Throughout the week, campaign activities were fervent as aspirants diligently engaged with delegates to secure their votes.
