The swearing-in ceremony for Kwabena Boateng, the newly elected Member of Parliament for the Ejisu seat, took place this Friday, May 17.

Speaker of the House Alban Bagbin presided over the solemn oath-taking ceremony in Parliament.

The Majority’s recall of the house made it possible for this emergency session, which resulted in Mr. Boateng’s official inauguration.

Following the untimely death of the previous MP for the area, John Kumah, on March 7, the Electoral Commission conducted a by-election that resulted in Mr. Boateng’s elevation to the parliamentary seat.

With 27,782 votes, or 55.79% of the total votes cast, Mr. Boateng secured victory with a commanding lead in the by-election that was conducted on Tuesday, April 30.

Kwabena Owusu Aduomi, the closest competitor and former constituency MP, was running as an independent and received 21,536 votes, or 43.24% of the total vote.

There was a 49.1% overall turnout for the by-election, although support for other candidates varied. The CPP’s Esther Osei earned 89 votes, the LPG’s Beatrice Boakye received 149 votes, the independent Gabriel Agyemang Joseph received 222 votes, and the independent Attakorah Joseph received 23 votes.
