NPP, NDC BATTLE READY FOR ASSIN NORTH SEAT
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have expressed their readiness to win the Assin North Parliamentary seat in the yet to be declared by-election by the Electoral Commission.
They have agreed to work within their party structures together with all relevant institutions to ensure transparent, free, fair, and credible elections.
According to them, the election of a legislator for the constituency will significantly ease the rising political tension and apprehensions in the area to accelerate rapid socio-economic development.
Speaking in separate interviews with the Ghana News Agency, Benjamin Esaah, constituency Chairman of NPP indicated that the party was poised to win the seat.
“We are battle ready but when it comes to by-elections, it is the National Council that is in-charge. We are putting our acts together to take the seat by all legal means to reaffirm the party’s political dominance in the area,” he said.
Mr Esaah blamed the 2021 parliamentary electoral defeat on ‘skirt and blouse’ voting and urged the party folks to bury their differences and work towards an emphatic electoral victory in the imminent election.
