Voting has commenced in the Ejisu constituency today Tuesday, April 30, 2024, to elect a new Member of Parliament (MP) for the area.

This comes on the back of the demise of former New Patriotic Party (NPP) lawmaker John Kumah.

Voting will held in 204 polling centers in the constituency for 106,812 voters to cast their votes in the by-election running from 7 am to 5 pm.

The election is expected to be keenly contested between the NPP candidate Kwabena Boateng and former MP Kwabena Aduomi, who is running independently after quitting the NPP.

The opposition National Democratic Congress opted out of the election.

The results will be announced at the Coalition Centre, located at the Catholic Church in Ejisu.

Six persons including three independent candidates, are contesting the much talked about by-election.
