NPP hammers NDC to claim majority in Parliament

NPP hammers NDC to claim majority in Parliament

With most of the results of the general elections on December 7 out, it appears that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has conceded not only the presidency but also majority seats in Parliament to the New  Patriotic Party (NPP) .

Prior to Wednesday’s polls, the NDC controlled the legislature as they held 148 seats to NPP’s 123 of the 275 seats.

However in a massive turnaround, the NPP look set to be the party with the largest number of seats in Parliament.

With the results from 266 constituencies provisionally declared, the NPP have won 170 of them to NDC’s 103,

If the results are certified as they are currently, the incoming government will control the  legislature as well as the executive.

The NDC retained all 12 of their seats in the Upper East Region and lost only one seat in the Volta Region in Krachi East.

However they made massive losses in the Central and Western Regions, losing 12 and 13 seats respectively having held a total of 34 seats in both regions prior to this year’s polls.

The Brong Ahafo and Northern Regions were less successful this time around as well as they lost 8 and 7 seats respectively.

The NPP, on the other hand, chalked impressive wins, capturing 12 new seats in the Central Region including George Andah’s famous win over Hanna Tetteh in Awutu Senya West.

Of the incumbents that lost their seats 7 were single-term members of parliament; 6 from the NDC and 1 from the NPP.
