Madam Sey, a beautician, polled 21,433 votes to beat Mr Jamal's 15,905 votes.

During campaigning, Baba Jamal had derided Madam Sey as a mere “hair dresser” who posed no threat to him.

Baba Jamal claimed that unlike him who was a professional politician and a lawyer, the New Patriotic Party's (NPP) aspirant lacked the capacity to understand proceedings in parliament and facilitate development of the constituency.
