Minister of Energy John Peter Amewu has made history in the Hohoe Constituency in the Volta Region by being elected as the Member of Parliament for the constituency.
Peter Amewu polled a whopping 26,952 votes to beat his National Democratic Congress (NDC) counterpart, Professor Margaret Kweku, who polled 21,821 votes.
The Convention People’s Party (CPP) candidate, William Oyie, polled 40 votes to come a distant third.
This win makes Peter the very first candidate of the NPP to win a seat in the Volta Region, which is considered a stronghold of the NDC.
His hard work saw him replace then Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko after he resigned.
