Emmanuel Boam defeats Dr Kwabena Donkor in Pru East

Pru East MP Dr Kwabena Donkor has lost his bid to represent the party in the 2024 elections.

The former Power Minister failed his bid to enter parliament for the fourth term after he polled 371 votes while his contender Emmanuel Kwaku Boam got 474 votes.

Another candidate, Bright Fiawornu managed 66 votes.

Last week, Emmanuel Kwaku Boam berated the Dr Kwabena Donkor for neglecting the constituency.

Boam, also known as Lord, said the neglect is the reason Dr Donkor’s votes kept decreasing each election year.

According to him, the constituents were fed up with the former Power Minister and calling for change ahead of the primaries.

” The delegates are calling for change because our MP is not putting up his best,” Boam said in an interview on Inside Politics on Power 97.9 FM.

“Dr Kwabena Donkor’s popularity in Pru East has declined and that is why in the 2020 elections, the NDC Presidential Candidate, H.E John Mahama secured more votes than the MP,” Boam argued in Akan.

Boam attributed the dwindling popularity of their MP to his failure to use his MPs common fund judiciously thereby brewing anger among the youth of the area.
