Delegates in the Sege Constituency of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Greater Accra Region, gave massive confirmation to Enock Teye Sewornu who for the first time contested for the chairmanship position and voted incumbent chairman, Stephen Quaye, and many other old executives out of power.

In an appreciation speech by the new chairman, he identified that the neglection of grassroots members is the major factor that has gradually dwindled the votes for the party in the constituency.
