In the just-ended New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Primaries, some heavyweights of the Party in Parliament have surprisingly lost their party’s endorsement to continue serving in Parliament.
At least 9 chairmen and vice chairmen have lost their bids to represent their constituents in Parliament.
Among those who have lost include the Chairman of Parliament’s Finance Committee, Dr. Mark Assibey Yeboah who lost the New Juaben South seat to the Executive Secretary of Free Zones, Michael Okyere Baafi.
Ben Abdallah Banda, who is also the Chairman of the Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee has also lost the Offinso South seat.
