NPP Primary: No winner declared in Yendi contest –EC

The NPP Parliamentary Primaries in Yendi have concluded without an officially recognized winner, according to the Electoral Commission (EC). The lack of a clear winner is attributed to disruptions during the vote counting process.

Despite the absence of an official declaration, both Farouk Mahama and Abibata Shani, the candidates, have individually claimed victory in the contest.

Dr. Serebuor Quaicoo, the Director of Electoral Services for the EC, addressed the issue on JoyNews monitored by African Editors, emphasizing that an official winner has not yet been determined.

In the meantime, concerns have been raised about the impact on the functioning of the house and government business as 28 members on the Majority side lost their bids to contest in the December 2024 Elections during the primaries.

However, Joseph Osei-Owusu, the First Deputy Speaker, reassured that the work in Parliament will not be affected, despite the significant number of Majority members losing their seats.


There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism. Thank you.
