Member of Parliament (MP) for Tano South, Hannah Louisa Bissiw will not be part of the 275 members that will be ushered into the 7th Parliament of the Fourth Republic.

Bissiw, also a deputy Minister for Food and Agriculture in charge of Livestock, after winning the parliamentary primary of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) unopposed failed to put up a good performance to retain the seat she won in 2012 for the akatamansonians.
In Wednesday’s poll, Bissiw amassed 17,215 of the total valid votes cast.

Her main opponent from the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sekyere Yeboah polled 21,018 to emerge victorious in the hotly contested poll.

The Tano South Constituency in the Brong Ahafo Region has been a strong hold of the Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition since 2000.

The party won majority votes in both the presidential and parliamentary polls.

However, in 2012, Dr. Bissiw standing on the ticket of the NDC, snatched the seat with 19,239 votes as against the 17,857 votes polled by the then incumbent NPP MP, Andrew Adjei-Yeboaho-Addo.
