Chairman Wontumi re-elected as Ashanti Regional NPP Chairman
The incumbent Ashanti Regional Chairman for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, has retained his seat.
This is the third time Chairman Wontumi, as he is popularly called, is securing the seat.
Chairman Wontumi first won the position in 2014 and was re-elected in 2018. Before this, he was the constituency chairman for Bosomtwe.
He polled 464 votes against that of his closest contender, Chairman Odeneho Kwaku Appiah (COKA), who got 306 votes and entered the chairmanship race, having served as constituency chairman for Afigya Kwabre South for close to 20 years.
In this year’s election, his contenders were Asare Bediako, Odeneho Kwaku Appiah, Owusu Aduomi and Oheneba Kofi Adum Bawuah.
Robert Asare Bediako, a former Asokwa Constituency Chairman who entered the contest for the second time, came third with 20 votes. In his first attempt in 2018, he pulled out of the race at the last minute to allow Wontumi to go unopposed.
Kwabena Owusu Aduomi, a former Member of Parliament for Ejisu, who lost a re-election bid as MP in 2019, losing to Dr John Kumah, was entering the regional contest for the first time and came fourth with nine votes.
Oheneba Kofi Adum Bawuah managed three votes for the fifth position.
