The British General elections took place on Thursday May 7 and it was no surprise as  3 Ghanaian  namely Kwasi Kwarteng, Adam Afriyie and Sam Gyimah won on the ticket of the Conservative party.

Kwasi Alfred Addo Kwarteng, a British Politician and a Historian was named as one of UK's hardest working  MP's and as one of the top attendance records in Parliament. In an exclusive survey by The Daily Telegraph, Kwasi was ranked in the top 20% on Friday April 17, 2015.

He was first elected in 2005 general elections and re- elected in 2010 and 2015 elections respectively.
Mr. Afriyie, a businessman who became MP for Windsor in 2005, had not held any ministerial post but has been touted in the press as a potential rival. He is known for the involvement and immense contributions on select committees.

Adam was known for his thoughtfulness, honesty and plain-speaking style. At the 2010 election, Adam returned to Windsor with the biggest majority in the history of the seat with 61%.

Sam Gyimah, a British Conservative politician was elected as the member of Parliament  for East Surrey at the 2010 general elections. He described himself as "elated" after holding his seat with 32,211 votes (57.41%) holding more than half of the percentage of the vote.
