The Member of Parliament for Mampong constituency, Francis Addai Nimo says he was surprised when he lost the ticket to represent the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2016 parliamentary election.

According to Mr. Addai Nimo, his defeat came to him as a shock as he was hopeful of retaining the seat.

“I was surprised by the outcome of Saturday’s election in Mampong. I was hopeful of winning to retain my seat for the next parliament so it was surprising for me. It is too early too for me to analyse and come out with any factor or factors which might have contributed to that,” he told Citi News.

Adding: “I have conveyed my message in a clear concise manner to the delegates and my campaign had been clean, I mobilized the logistics to support the campaign. So on the day of election I was so confident that my constituents will re-elect me to contest the 2016 general elections.”

The honourable had 207 votes as against Kwaku Ampratwums Sarpong’s 232. He however promised to work tirelessly to deliver victory for NPP in 2016.

The NPP voted on Saturday, June 13, 2015 to elect parliamentary candidates in 245 constituencies for the 2016 elections.

Twenty-five (25) sitting MPs lost their bids to contest in next year’s general elections. The list made up of six (6) women and nineteen (19) men include, Dr. Richard Anane, Dr. Afriyie Akoto, Joe Appiah, Esther Obeng Dapaah and W.O Boafo.
