Boundaries[edit]

The seat is located within the Krachi District of the Volta Region of Ghana. It covers the whole of the new Krachi District. To the east is the Krachi East constituency. It also shares a short border with the Nkwanta South to the north east. Its western neighbour is the Sene constituency in the Sene District of the Brong Ahafo Region. Its northern neighbour is the East Gonja District in the Northern Region.

History[edit]

This boundaries of this constituency were changed prior to the Ghanaian parliamentary election in 2004 when the Krachi constituency was split into the Krachi West and the Krachi East constituencies respectively due to the creation of the new Krachi East District from the Krachi district.[1]
