Ghanaian actor, John Dumelo won the primaries of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency.
He will contest the seat on the ticket of the NDC during next year’s general elections.
Dumelo secured the slot by gaining 758 votes whereas his competitor, Suzzy Afua Adoboe nabbed 95 votes.
He expressed interest in contesting the NDC primaries when the seat became vacant following the death of the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP, Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko in November 2018.
He however withdrew before the main contest.
