The National Democratic Congress (NDC), the biggest opposition party, has re-elected Dr. Louisa Hannah Bissiw as its National Women’s Organizer.
The election was held on December 10, 2022, in the Examination Hall of the University of Cape Coast, and the former Member of Parliament for Tano South defeated Margaret Ansei, her lone opponent.
Prior to the main National Executive Congress scheduled for December 17, the location served as the location for the NDC’s National Youth and Women’s Conference.
Hannah Bissiw received 433 votes compared to Ansei’s 362 at the conclusion of voting and ballot counting.
On December 11, 2022, early on Sunday, results were announced.
While the ballots were being counted, there were heated moments as both candidates’ supporters chanted and danced while asserting their victory.
As a result, Bissiw, a former deputy minister of food and agriculture, has kept her job, which she initially won in 2018.
Felicia Dzifa Tegah and Abigail Elorm Mensah, who received 348 and 260 votes respectively in the contest for deputy Women’s Organizer, will serve as her deputies.
The National Executives Congress, which will oversee the election of officers to manage the party’s activities through the elections in 2024, will now command the attention of party supporters.
