Deputy Minority Leader in Parliament, Muntaka Mubarak has beaten the NPP parliamentary candidate, Alidu Seidu to retain the Asawase Constituency seat.
The incumbent won with 51,659 votes while the NPP candidate polled 31,256.
Speaking on his win, Mr. Mubarak said he was grateful to have had supporters who believe in him and therefore voted for him to be retained.
He stated that in 2016 when he won with only a difference of 6,000, many people thought the electorate will show him the exit in this year’s election.
“…but I have won 13 of the 15 electoral areas. I will continue to do my very best to project the image of the constituency.”
“I will work very hard to help push for positive change in many of the challenges that confront the people in this constituency,” Mr Mubarak added.
