Hon. Okraku-Mantey will come up against former MP of the area, Hon. Samuel Ayeh-Paye, for the parliamentary primary if both successfully file and are approved by the party.

The New Democratic Congress (NDC) clinched the seat from the ruling party in the 2020 elections after Hon. Teddy Nana Yaw Addi beat Hon. Samuel Ayeh-Paye.

All eyes will be on Ayensuano to see if Hon. Okraku-Mantey’s inclusion will help win the seat back for the governing party.
