The Executive Secretary of the National Accreditation Board, Dr Kingsley Nyarko, has been elected to represent the Kwadaso constituency on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the December polls.
He defeated the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP), Dr Samiu Kwadwo Nuamah, and Mr Vincent Frimpong Manu, the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Middle Belt Development Authority.
Dr Nyarko, also a psychology lecturer at the University of Ghana, Legon, won with 172 out of the 390 votes cast.
The incumbent, who prior to the election was very confident of winning had 158 votes while Mr Manu had 48 votes.
The election was rescheduled to Wednesday, June 24, 2020 due to a controversy over the voter album.
Days to the election, however, all three aspirants agreed on a new album after a cleaning exercise.
