John Dumelo loses Ayawaso West Wuogon race

Actor-turned-politician John Dumelo has lost his bid to represent the people of Ayawaso West Wuogon in Parliament

Popular movie star, John Dumelo, failed in his bid to win the Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary seat for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP for the constituency, Lydia Seyram Alhassan, retained the seat after the close of polls.

Certified results from the Electoral Commission (EC) gave Alhassan 39,851 votes as against Dumelo’s 37,778 votes.

Alhassan won the parliamentary seat back in 2019 in a by-election following the death of her husband Emmanuel Boakye Agyarko, who was the MP at that time.
