The dust is still yet to settle on the results of the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections. But one thing is clear; the next parliament will have a lot of new faces.

At least, 108 out of the 275 Members of the 7th Parliament will not return to the house in the 8th Parliament.

Either because they lost the primaries in their parties or are retiring or lost the seat in the December 7 elections. That means about 39.20% of all the 275 MPs are not returning to the house.

NPP
At least 33 incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) MPs lost their seats in the December 7 elections. About 21 of them are either ministers, ministers of state or deputy ministers.

That is aside the 41 incumbent MPs who lost the NPP primaries earlier this year and thus did not contest in Monday’s polls. Meanwhile, 4 NPP MPs are retiring.

In total, the NPP will lose at least 78 MPs out of their 169 in the next parliament. That means about 50% of all NPP MPs are not returning.

NDC
On the National Democratic Congress (NDC) side, at least 15 MPs lost in the elections. That is aside from the 10 NDC MPs who lost their primaries last year, and 7 NDC MPs who are retiring.

That means 32 current NDC MPs out of the 106 are not returning to parliament. That means about 30% of all NDC MPs in parliament are not retiring.
