Member of Parliament for the Assin Central constituency, Kennedy Agyapong could not obtain the majority of the votes from the Central region in the just ended New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Super Delegates Congress.

Addressing the media after casting his vote, Mr. Agyapong said his impactful developmental initiatives speak volumes and he will win the region by at least 80%

“At least I will get 80%, no doubt about it. I will get 80% so we should rest assured because they’re going to honour me due to my commitment to the region.

“I think everybody you talk to – all the delegates know what I’ve done for Central region and they think it’s also time to honour me,” he said.

However, at the end of the voting on Saturday, August 26, 2023, at the University of Cape Coast, the outspoken legislator secured just 19 votes.

Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia who won the majority of votes polled 25 votes.

Former Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen got 4 votes.

Former Agric Minister Afriyie Akoto garnered 3 votes.

Joe Ghartey, Kojo Poku, and Boakye Agyarko earned a vote each.

Kwabena Agyei Agyapong, Dr. Konadu Apraku, and Francis Addai Nimo failed to garner any ballots at all.

The Super Delegates Congress is being held to elect five presidential aspirants to contest the party’s primaries in November this year.

The top five candidates who receive the most votes will participate in the NPP’s primary to be chosen as its flagbearer for the 2024 general election.
