Mr. Kwabena Boateng of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has emerged victorious in the Ejisu by-election, securing 27,782 votes, which accounts for 55.8% of the total votes cast. His closest rival, Independent Candidate Mr. Kwabena Owusu Aduomi, obtained 21,534 votes, representing 43.3% of the total
votes. The by-election saw a spirited campaign, especially between Mr. Boateng and Mr. Aduomi, the latter being a former three-time NPP Member of Parliament for the constituency who ran as an
Independent Candidate.
Following his electoral victory as the Member of Parliament-elect for Ejisu, Kwabena Boateng has underscored the critical need to engage disenchanted members within the New Patriotic Party (NPP)
as they gear up for the upcoming 2024 elections.

As the newly elected representative for Ejisu Lawyer Boateng calls for unity and inclusivity within the party to bridge gaps and solidify internal support ahead of the next electoral cycle.

In a related development the National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Stephen Ayesu Ntim has committed to reconciling Kwabena Owusu Aduomi, the former Ejisu Member of
Parliament and runner-up in Tuesday’s Ejisu by-election, with the party.
He emphasized Mr. Aduomi’s significance to the NPP and stated his determination to reintegrate him into the party.
Mr. Aduomi, who served three terms as an NPP MP for Ejisu, opted to contest as an Independent Candidate in the by-election.
In an interview with the media, Mr. Ntim expressed concern about intra-party competition, particularly between two candidates from the same party.
He urged party members not to celebrate the party’s victory but instead to focus on reconciling Aduomi with the NPP.
