Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has been elected as the Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Dr Bawumia emerged victorious at the just ended NPP presidential race held across the 275 constituencies in the country.
Certified results from the Electoral Commission (EC) available to The Ghana Report indicate that Dr. Bawumia obtained 118, 210 votes (61.47%), Kennedy Agyapong comes in second with 71,996 votes.
The former Minister for Food and Agriculture, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, comes in third with 1,459 votes followed by Francis Addai-Nimoh with 781 votes.
The total vote cast was 193,346, with 900 rejected votes.
This means the Vice President will be leading the charge to break the eight and retain power for the governing NPP.
He would have to face the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Flagbearer and Former President John Dramani Mahama.
Dr Bawumia is also the first non-Akan to lead the NPP into a general election after being the running mate to President Akufo-Addo since 2008.
