The incumbent Member of Parliament for the Ketu South constituency in the Volta region, Fiifi Kwetey has massively won the parliamentary primary to represent the ruling National Democratic Congress in the 2016 elections.
Mr. Kwetey secured more than 80 percent of the total votes cast in the Tuesday primaries, which saw low voter turnout.
According to certified results from the Electoral Commission, Mr. Kwetey polled 14,610 votes as against his two contenders, Sylvanus Amedorme and Famous Kuadagah's 1,375 and 637 votes respectively while 340 rejected ballots were recorded.
The primaries in Ketu South was postponed following a court suit filed by suspended Parliamentary aspirant Jim Morti but the case was thrown out, paving way for the election.
Prior to the election the Agric Minister [Fiifi Kwetey] said he will unite the party in constituency if he is given the nod by the people again to represent the NDC in the 2016 parliamentary election.
“What is most important is that we must understand that in a democracy, you win and you lose; so people must have the democratic temper. Understand that Ketu South is what is important. Let’s make sure that we do what we can for the constituency”.
