Newly elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumbungu Constituency Amadu Moses Yahaya is expected to work within his party’s ideology.
“We expect to see him work in the spirit and letter of the party’s ideology and be guided by the will of the people in the constituency for change.”
In a statement to thank constituents, the Electoral Commission (EC) and security services at post during last Tuesday’s by-election, the Convention People’s Party (CPP) did not hide its joy at seeing its candidate win a seat in Parliament and noted: “The Party would support and demonstrate its commitment by helping him achieve the overall political goal.”
“The Party believes that the election of Amadu Moses Yahaya is a bold statement on strengthening parliamentary democracy in Ghana and to cause change in the one-way pattern of Ghana’s two-party political system,” the statement said.
Mr Yahaya emerged winner of the Kumbungu by-election to become the only CPP Member of the Sixth Parliament.
He polled 13,029 votes to beat closest contender Alhaji Imoro Yakubu Kakpagu.
