James Gyakye Quayson ‘Begs’ For More Votes In Assin North By – Election

Deposed James Gyakye Quayson, a congressman for Assin North, has urged the community to vote for him in the impending by-election by turning out in large numbers.

He claims he intends to run for office again.

On behalf of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Gyakye Quayson has formally announced his desire to run in the Assin North by-election.

The Supreme Court had previously instructed Parliament to strike his name from the legislative record.

Mr. Quasyon stated in a statement on June 1: “I know that you, the residents of Assin North, are prepared for the bye-election.

“You have not had representation in the 8th Parliament of the 4th Republic since last April, when the Supreme Court ordered me to stop carrying out my duties as your representative in Parliament. You, the people of Assin North, have also been in that intolerable condition for more than a year, just as the SALL Traditional Areas people who are not represented in this Parliament.
This predicament will be resolved by the bye-election, which is required by the Constitution (Article 112(5)) to be held within thirty days of the Supreme Court’s ruling.
The Assin North people’s will must prevail.

The need to reinstate democracy. I implore you all to cast your votes for me so that I can return to Parliament and carry on the job I started doing on your behalf to forward the development agenda for Assin North.

He would be put forward for the by-election by the NDC.

The by-election was scheduled for Tuesday, June 27, according to the Ghanaian Electoral Commission (EC).

Following the Attorney General’s letter to the Speaker on Wednesday, May 17, informing him of the Supreme Court’s ruling, Cyril Kwabena Oteng Nsiah, the Clerk of Parliament, declared the seat vacant.

The EC announces that nominations for potential candidates will be accepted from Monday, June 12 to Wednesday, June 14 from 9:00am to 12:00pm and from 2:00pm to 5:00pm each day in a press release issued exactly two weeks later.

Beginning on June 1st, the forms will be accessible for downloading.

The election’s filing price is ten thousand Ghana cedis (GH10,000.00) per candidate, according to the press release from the chairperson, Jean Mensa.

“Quadruple delivery of all completed nomination forms is expected.”
