The Member of Parliament for the New Juaben South Constituency, Mark Assibey-Yeboahâ€™s bid to return to Parliament has been dashed following his defeat in the New Patriotic Partyâ€™s (NPP) primary in the New Juaben South constituency.
He was defeated by the Executive Secretary of the Free Zones Board, Michael Okyere Baafi.
Mr. Baafi secured 372 votes out of the total number of 572 votes cast while Dr. Assibey-Yeboah polled a total of 200 votes.
Prior to the election, Mark Assibey-Yeboah had petitioned the General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu over what he called an attempt to alter the constituencyâ€™s album ahead of the partyâ€™s parliamentary primaries.
The MP had asked Mr. Boadu to use his office to ensure that the â€œsanctity of the constituency album is preserved.â€
