The NPP has never won a Presidential Election in the Constituency since 1992, but has won the Parliamentary seat for five times since 1992 whereas the NPP has won the seat only two times (2004 and 2012) with Mr Osei-Ameyaw as the candidate”
“He has contested the Asuogyaman seat on three occasions, won twice and lost once in 2008”
