The constituency which was carved out of the Awutu Senya Constituency in 2012, has seven major towns which hold the key to the outcome of the election. They include; Senya Beraku, Awutu Beraku, Bawjiase, Obrachire, Bontrase, Jei-Krodua and Ayensuako.
Andah had widely been reported to have wrestled the seat from Hannah Tetteh, but later reports suggested that the results had been disputed, leading to some chaos at the constituency collation centre.
The campaign for the seat had drawn lots of attention from the media and the public following accusations of sexism on the part of Mr. Andah. The NPP candidate in his bid to win votes, challenged Ms. Tetteh who is a divorcee, to show her husband to the people, like he [Andah] did his wife. This was after Hannah Tetteh described Andah as an irresponsible man who was sacked from all the companies he worked with.
NPP’s Andah had entered into the race the underdog, having been described as a novice who knows nothing about politics. The incumbent was very optimistic of retaining her seat for the National Democratic Congress (NDC). This was due to her influence in the constituency and her reputable position as the Minister for Foreign Affairs.
But to the NDC’s surprise, Hannah Tetteh loses to the man they least expected, to win the Awutu Senya West seat.
