Assin North Result Is A Wake-Up Call – NPP to Party supporters

The Assin North by-election, according to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and party supporters, served as a wake-up call that will cause the party to conduct itself rationally in future elections.

The NPP’s candidate Charles Opoku lost the parliamentary seat bid to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate, James Gyakye Quayson who polled 17,245 votes representing 57.56%, against 12,630 votes garnered by opponent Charles Opoku, representing 42.15%, on Tuesday, June 27, 2023, with the Liberal Party of Ghana’s (LPG) candidate, Sefenu Bernice Enyonam, polling a paltry 87 votes, representing 0.29%.

The party was confident in reclaiming the Assin seat but was swayed by the opposition’s NDC candidate.

“While we had diligently worked towards reclaiming the Assin North Parliament, seat, we respect the decision and judgment of the people of the Assin North constituency,”

Supporters were invited to send their thoughts and suggestions to the national secretariat for consideration and potential action, according to a statement from the party’s general secretary, Justin Koduah Frimpong.

“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”.

The letter also expressed congratulations to the NDC for winning the by-election and to its parliamentary candidate.

“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,”
