Member of Parliament(MP) for the Korle-Klottey Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings has said she wished her father was around to celebrate her victory with her.
The first daughter of Ghana’s former President retained her seat in the keenly Korle-Klottey Parliamentary election on December 7, 2020.
Addressing the media after her victory, the lawmaker told the Press that “It is a mixture of feelings. I wish my dad was here but such is life”.
To her, it’s imperative that she works towards ensuring that the Constituency moves from being a swing constituency to a stronghold of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
“I believe that NDC will win both the presidential and parliamentary elections in Klottey Korle. We are really setting the records straight so that it changes from being a swing constituency to an NDC seat.”
Dr. Zanetor retained her seat by polling 39,343 out of 70,687 votes cast. Her closest opponent of the New Patriotic Party, Prince Appiah Debrah, got 31,154 votes whiles the Candidate for the LPG garnered 190 votes.
Jerry John Rawlings was Ghana’s first President under the fourth republic and is credited for leading the charge in a Democratic Ghana.
The country lost him on November 12 after he died from a short illness.
