Renowned Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has defeated his contender in the National Democratic Congress(NDC) parliamentary elections to become the party’s parliamentary candidate in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency ahead of the 2020 General elections.
The actor won the majority of the votes at the NDC primaries to defeat his contender Madam Adoboe.
At the end of the polls, John Dumelo won with 758 votes as Madam Adoboe managed to get only 99 votes.
It could be recalled that John Dumelo earlier came forward to contest the NDC primaries when the seat for the constituency became vacant following the demise of the incumbent MP, Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko in November 2018.
He later withdrew before the main primaries.
