NDC withdraws from Ejisu by-election

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has decided to withdraw from the upcoming Ejisu by-election, which was scheduled for April 30. This decision comes after the unfortunate passing of the constituency’s Member of Parliament, John Ampontuah Kumah.

Fifi Fiavi Kwetey, the General Secretary of the NDC, stated that the party will be redirecting its efforts towards preparing for the main parliamentary elections in December. This strategic move allows the NDC to focus on their long-term goals and objectives.

Meanwhile, delegates from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the constituency have selected Kwabena Boateng, the second Vice Chairman of the party in the constituency, as their candidate for the by-election. This decision was made during a meeting held last Saturday, April 13.

During a media briefing, Mr. Kwetey reiterated the NDC’s stance on abstaining from the by-election. He emphasized the party’s dedication to laying the groundwork for the December polls, highlighting their commitment to a comprehensive and strategic approach to the upcoming elections.

“NDC will officially not be taking part in the Ejisu by-election. We have already set into motion processes leading to December 7, just a few months away. We want to continue those processes and ensure that come December 7, we are prepared to combat in all the constituencies and Ejisu will be one of them. So for this particular by-election, NDC will not be part of it. We are very confident about the processes we have in place. We just want to make sure we have the time to implement them fully. And between now and December 7, we will be in the position to make sure we are deploying everything that we have done so that really will be the way we want to go” he explained.
