NDC Primaries 2015: Sitting MPs Lose Candidature

The 2015 National Democratic Congress (NDC) primaries have so far seen over a dozen incumbent Members of Parliament (MPs) lose their candidature to contest in the 2016 parliamentary elections.

Some of the new faces in the NDC have defeated some ‘big wigs’ in the party’s parliamentary primaries on Saturday.

For example 26 year old Joycelyn Tetteh toppled George Loh in the North Dayi constituency of the Volta Region who is only in his first term in Parliament.
