The Atwima Mponua Constituency of the New Patriotic Party in the Ashanti region at a delegate's conference has re-elected their sitting Member of Parliament, Isaac Kwame Asiamah as their parliamentary candidate to contest the seat in the December Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

Isaac Kwame Asiamah polled 138 out of the 159 votes cast to beat his other aspirants, Lawyer Akwasi Badu (1), Charles Yeboah, former DCE (11) and Afriyei Dantey, former MP for the area (7).

He would have his second straight parliamentary victory if he becomes victorious in the December poll.

He dedicated his victory to his fellow contestants and the party, saying that he will bring all his competitors on board in his campaign to ensure resounding victory. The election was supervised by the Ashanti Regional Office of the Electoral Commission.

He advised the New Patriotic Party's national, regional and constituency executives to avoid complacency and work hard to win a landslide victory in the December election. He urged the party faithful, especially the youth to redouble their efforts and map out strategies that would help the NPP to secure more votes in the polls especially in the Antwima Mponua constituency.

The NPP constituency chairman, Yaw Amankwah urged losing contestants not to feel bitter but close their ranks, unite and plan for victory in the December elections. He said the Party was bigger than any individual and therefore urged supporters of the losing aspirants to unite behind the party.
