Kwame Twumasi Ampofo has won the Sene West seat for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) by 16 votes after a legal challenge held up the counting of ballots and collation of results for over a week.
He polled 13,116 to Joseph Markay Kuma of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) 13,100 votes.
Ceasar Fomekah of the National Democratic Party came in third with 191 votes.
Six hundred and sixty votes were rejected.
The counting was supervised by the EC officers in the company of Dan Kwaku Botwe of the NPP and NDC General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, among others.
The NPP representatives called for a re-collation of the results with delayed the certification.
Sene West was the only outstanding seat in the Parliamentary elections which had seen the NPP win 137 seats in Parliament whilst the NDC has 136 seats.
The NDC’s victory raises its seats in the eighth Parliament to 137.
The Sene West election results were delayed because Mr. Kuma, sought an injunction against the election results over claims of irregularities with the electoral process.
A man snatched the ballot box from the Tato ‘A’ polling station in Tato Bator.
But in court on Thursday morning, the Presiding Judge, His Lordship Justice Frederick Nawura, struck out the NPP’s case and directed that the Electoral Commission be allowed to do its work.
