Actor John Dumelo Wins Ayawaso West Wuogon Primary

Award-winning actor John Dumelo has won the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency Primary under the ticket of the National Democratic Congress [NDC] parliamentary elections ahead of the 2020 general elections.

At the end of the polls, John Dumelo had 758 votes while his only contender, Madam Adoboe managed with scanty 99 votes.

A total of 859 delegates voted in the elections with two rejected ballots.

Dumelo had earlier come forward to contest the NDC primaries for the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency when that seat became vacant following the death of the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP, Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko in November 2018.

He, however, withdrew before the main contest.

A pharmacist, Delali Brempong won the primaries at the party level but lost to the widow of the late MP, Lydia Alhassan who contested on the ticket of the NPP in the controversial polls.
