Voter Participation and Dedication

1081 delegates cast ballots in the primaries, indicating high voter turnout. The by-election was necessitated by the loss of late MP John Kumah on March 7, 2024, and the delegate’s dedication to selecting a candidate who can carry on his legacy is reflected in this turnout.

After winning, Kwabena Boateng thanked the delegates for their confidence and support.
