Voting has started in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency to elect a representative to replace Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko, whose demise in November last year, has necessitated the by- election.

At the Emmanuel Medical Centre Eye Clinic Polling Station at Shiashie, the first person proceeded to cast his vote at exactly 0700 hours.

The Presiding Officer, Richard Kofi Badu, told the GNA that a total of 1,137 electorate were on the local register.

The seat is being contested by four candidates: Lydia Seyram Alhassan, of the New Patriotic Party and widow of the late MP, Delali Kwasi Brempong, of the National Democratic Congress, William Kofi Doworkpor of the Progressive People’s Party and Clement Boadi of the Liberal Party of Ghana.

More than 80,000 registered voters are expected to excerise their franchise in the election.
The Constituency has been a stronghold of the NPP, which has won the seat in all the elections since Ghana’s Fourth Republic, except for 1992, which it did not contest.
