Ningo-Prampram MP Sam George wins primary again. The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has chosen Sam George as its candidate for the Ningo-Prampram constituency for the fourth time.
He defeated his rival, Michael Kwettey Nettey, by a narrow margin of seven votes in a heated race.
The election was marred by claims of cheating from Mr Kwettey’s camp, which led to a temporary suspension of the voting by the Police.
