According to Dr Hanna Bisiw, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) would not withdraw from the Assin North by-elections as it did in a comparable one in Ayawaso West Wuogon.
On Eric Ahianyo’s Ideas Exchange on TV XYZ, the NDC’s national women’s organiser made the following statement.
The former minister’s remark follows a Supreme Court decision barring James Quayson from running for the Assin North Constituency in the Central Region.
The Supreme Court has declared that Assin North MP James Gyakye Quayson can no longer execute Parliamentary duties, in a 5-2 judgment.
This is until the Supreme Court rules on the substantive case brought against him.
However, Hanna Bisiw believes that if by-elections are held, the ruling NPP should not use violence since the opposition NDC will confront them honestly.
“We’re not going to back down.” We’ll keep going till the very end. “It’s a make-or-break situation for us,” she explained.
