Politics Series 6: UK Parliamentary elections - the results

Updated: 7 days ago

Three British-Ghanaian politicians secured seats in this year's UK Parliamentary elections on 4 July.

Two British-Ghanaian Labour MPs retained their seats in London in the UK's Parliamentary elections.


Bell Ribeiro-Addy representing Clapham and Brixton Hill and Abena Oppong-Asare representing Erith and Thamesmead. She secured 22,246 votes.


UPDATE: Abena has since been appointed as Parliamentary Secretary in the Cabinet Office. This is a junior ministerial role and involves supporting the Minister for the Cabinet Office (Georgia Gould) on cross-government delivery and implementation.


Meanwhile, after a series of failed attempts to be elected in previous elections, Ben Obese-Jecty secured a seat in the Tory stronghold of Huntingdon.
