The ruling New Patriotic Party has elected Mr Ernest Yaw Anim as its Parliamentary candidate in the May 23 Kumawu by-election constituency by-election.

This was after Mr Anim had polled 195 votes of the 418 valid votes cast.

His contenders – Ms Ama Serwa N.T. obtained 181 votes; Dr. Aboagye Da- Costa had 27; Dr Kwame Appiah Kubi polled 10; and Mr Kwame Bempah Osei-Hweree had five votes. One ballot was rejected.

The election was held on Sunday, April 23, at the Besoro Community Centre.

Mr Philip Basoah passed on, after a short illness, in the early hours of Tuesday, March 28, at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, in Accra.

He was 53.

The Electoral Commission set May 23, 2023 for the by-election.
