NPP Congratulates NDC for winning Odododiodio seat

By GNA

Accra, Aug 31, GNA - The New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Wednesday sent a congratulatory message to the National Democratic Congress on its victory in the Tuesday bye-election for winning the Odododiodio constituency parliamentary seat.

The seat became vacant following the death of Samuel Mankattah the NDC Member of Parliament for the area.

A statement signed by Mr Harona Esseku, National Chairman of NPP also commended the other contestants in the bye-election for the relative civility they demonstrated.

The NPP expressed the hope that all parties would continue to share its commitment to the proposition that competition for political power could and should take place in an atmosphere devoid of acrimony and animosity.

This, the statement said, would help deepen the country's democracy.

The Electoral Commission declared the National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate Mr Jonathan Tackie-Kommey, 52, the winner of the election after he polled 26,771 votes representing 57.85 percent of votes cast.

His closest rival, Mr Lennox Nii Asafoatse Mankattah, 36 standing on the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) polled 18,465 votes, representing 39.90 percent of total votes.

Mr Christian Shanco-Bruce, 63, of the Convention People's Party (CPP) polled 946 votes while the Democratic People's Party candidate, Mr Issaka Nii Amu Collinson-Coffie, 27, polled 98 votes, representing 2.04 and 0.21 percent respectively.
