A presidential staffer, Alex Martey, has emerged as parliamentary aspirant for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ningo Prampram Constituency.

Mr. Martey polled 269 votes against his contender Rita Akweley Addotey, who got 207 votes out of total votes cast in the NPP parliamentary primary for orphan constituencies.
