Actor turned Politician John Dumelo has come out victorious in the just ended National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) parliamentary elections held on Saturday August 24, 2019.
The “Perfect Piture” actor won majority votes to become the party’s parliamentary candidate in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency ahead of the 2020 general elections.
John Dumelo won massively with 758 votes while his only contender, Madam Adoboe had 99 votes.
A total of 859 delegates voted in the elections with two rejected ballots.
Dumelo had earlier come forward to contest the NDC primaries for the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency when that seat became vacant following the death of the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP, Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko in November 2018.
He, however, withdrew before the main contest the seat is currently occupied by NPP’s Madam Lydia Alhassan.
