The parliamentary primaries of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) held on Saturday, June 20, 2020, was characterised by surprise losses for some incumbent Members of Parliament.
However, some sitting MPs remained unaverred by their determined challengers.
For instance, MP for Dome Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo, retained her seat after a close call from her contender, Mike Oquaye Jnr, who polled 488.
Adwoa Safo stumbled to victory with 496 votes, an eight-vote difference.
Others, however, cruised easily to victory, beating their contenders resoundingly.
George Andah beat his opponent with more than 200 votes, polling 438 against Joseph Aidoo who managed only 191 votes.
