Mr Anthony Gyampoh, a former District Chief Executive (DCE) for Akuapem North, on Wednesday won the Akropong Constituency primary held at Larteh to contest the parliamentary seat on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
He polled 153 votes to defeat his only challenger Mrs Margaret Ansah, a businesswoman, who had 64 votes.
Mr Gyampoh called for hard work by all NDC supporters to enable them to wrestle the seat from the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He said when elected as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, one of his priorities would be to source for funds to assist farmers and traders.
Mr Gyampoh appealed to party supporters to close their ranks and to mount an aggressive education campaign in the communities to sell the ideals of the NDC to the electorate to be able to win more votes for the party.
Mrs Ansah pledged her full support for the candidate and said together with her supporters they would leave no stone unturned to ensure that the parliamentary seat changed hands come December.
Mr Julius Debrah, Eastern Regional Chairman of the NDC, called on the NPP government to listen to the voice of majority of Ghanaians to halt the sale of Ghana Telecom to foreigners.
He accused the government of deceiving Ghanaians that health care in the country is now free at the time that premium under the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) kept on rising.
Mr Debrah said "free" should mean that a sick person could go to hospital free and urged the electorate to vote out the NPP government.
Mr Bismarck Tawiah Boateng, Regional Organizer of the NDC, advised party supporters to guard against petty squabbles and to unite to be able to woo more floating voters to the party.
He criticized the registration for the National Identification Card alongside the voters registration exercise and said the two exercises together would only confuse majority of Ghanaians.
Ms Evelyn Korang, Regional Women's Organizer, said the greatest legacy that the PNDC government bequeathed to Ghanaians was the promulgation of the PNDC Law 111 and urged women to reciprocate the gesture by voting massively for the NDC in the December election.
