List of big casualties in NPP Primaries



Parliament has lost some of its fine brains in the just-ended New Patriotic Party (NPP), Primaries across the country.

The New Patriotic Party held its parliamentary primaries in constituencies where the party had sitting Members of Parliament(MPs) across the country to elect candidates ahead of the December 7 polls.

Some of the lawmakers who chair notable committees in Parliament have lost their seats to virtually new entrants who will have to be tutored if elected on December 7 on parliamentary business.

These candidates will be representing the NPP in the 2020 elections and will get the nod to represent the people in their constituencies if they are voted for.

The casualties include:

Chairman of Parliament’s Finance Committee Dr. Mark Assibey Yeboah

Chairman of Parliament’s Communications Committee Fredrick Opare Ansah

Chairman of Parliament’s Education Committee William Quaitoo

Chairman of Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee Ben Abdallah

Also, Vice Chairman of Parliament’s Agriculture Committee Abraham Odoom
