The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has congratulated NDC parliamentary candidate, James Gyake Quayson for winning the Assin North by-election.

The NDC candidate secured 17,245 votes representing 57.57% while his opponent, Charles Opoku of the NPP had 12,630 votes representing 42.15% in Tuesday’s election.

The Assin North seat became vacant after the Supreme Court on Wednesday, May 17, unanimously declared unconstitutional the election of James Gyakye Quayson as the MP for the area.

“The Party extends its warmest congratulations to the National Democratic Congress and the Member of Parliament-elect for the Assin North Constituency on their electoral victory,” the party said in a statement signed by its General Secretary, Justin Kodua

While we had diligently worked towards reclaiming the Assin North parliamentary seat, we respect the decision and judgment of the people of the Assin North Constituency. The NDC’S victory in the by-election adds to Ghana’s democratic credentials. Indeed, the recent two by-elections have demonstrated the strength of the country’s democracy, with outcomes favouring different political parties. This is a testament to Ghana’s much-touted accolade as a bastion of peace and stable democracy on the African continent.

The Party extends its warmest congratulations to the National Democratic Congress and the Member of Parliament-elect for the Assin North Constituency on their electoral victory.

In spite of the conduct of some personnel of the Ghana Police Service that were deployed to man the elections, we commend the security services for their joint efforts during and after the elections. We further commend the Electoral Commission for ensuring a successful election.

Finally, we express our gratitude to the hundreds of journalists who worked tirelessly and responsibly to provide up-to-date feedback from the Assin North poll for the benefit of all Ghanaians.

The New Patriotic Party reiterates its unwavering commitment to collaborating with other political parties, key electoral stakeholders, and the people of Ghana to further enhance the practice of democracy in the country.

The Party views the outcome of the by-election as a wake-up call, prompting us to evaluate our approach, make rational retrospective assessments, and conduct a thorough analysis.

We urge our dedicated party supporters to submit their comments and recommendations to the national secretariat of the party for consideration and possible implementation.
