The incumbent Member of Parliament, Dorcas Affo-Toffey, has been elected as the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for the Jomoro seat.
The female politician, entrepreneur, and philanthropist triumphed by a landslide.
She received 1,574 votes at the conclusion of voting and tabulation.
Francis Actatia Kwaidoo, her opponent, received only 175 votes.
She has since been declared the elected parliamentary candidate.
Former President John Dramani Mahama received 1,721 votes in the presidential primary.
Dr. Kwabena Duffour and Kojo Bonsu each received 15 votes.
In November 2022, a High Court in Sekondi has dismissed an election petition challenging Ms Affo-Toffey’s eligibility to contest the 2020 parliamentary election.
The petition, filed by a resident of Jomoro, Joshua Emuah Kofie, accused the MP of having dual nationality, Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire, at the time she filed to contest the 2020 parliamentary election, in violation of Article 94(2)(a) of the 1992 Constitution.
But the court in its judgment held that before filing to contest the 2020 election, the MP had lawfully renounced her Ivorian citizenship, in compliance with the laws of Cote d’Ivoire.
The court presided over by Dr Justice Richmond Osei Hwere was of the considered view of the court that unlike other countries, such as Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire had outlawed dual citizenship and did not allow its citizens to take the citizenship of other countries.
