Attending to the needs of the people and being the listening government that the New Patriotic Party label themselves to be, considered the demands of the constituents of the Mfantseman constituency and gave Mrs. Ophelia Mensah Hayford a non contesting candidature on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party. The ending spectrum of the 2020 polls saw Mrs. Ophelia Mensah Hayford win significantly to represent the people of the Mfantseman constituency in the upcoming eighth (8) parliament to be experienced under the fourth republic.
