Results trickling in from some polling centres in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency shows the New Patriotic Party (NPP) candidate, Lydia Alhassan taking an early lead.
Political parties vying for the vacant seat are the New Patriotic Party (NPP), National Democratic Congress (NDC), Progressive People’s Party (PPP) and Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG).
The candidates are Lydia Seyram Alhassan (NPP); Kwasi Delali Brempong (NDC); William Dowokpor (PPP); and Clement Boadi of the LPG.
According to Joy News correspondents who reported from few of the 137 polling stations, the wife of deceased MP Kyeremanten Agyarko has taken the lead.
