Mahama Ayariga, a member of the constitutional, legal and parliamentary affairs committee of Parliament has said that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will win the Assin North seat again if there should be a by-election.
“Of course, I mean anytime that there’s finality and we’re given an indication that we have to put up a candidate, the party will put up a candidate. And we are very confident that we’ll win that seat again. So, I don’t think it is an issue that we are worried about as a Minority,” the Bawku Central MP spoke to Asaase Radio’s Beatrice Adu.
The Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday (13 April 2022) that James Gyakye Quayson cannot hold himself as the Member of Parliament for Assin North in the Central Region.
The seven-member panel presided over by Justice Jones Dotse reached a 5:2 majority decision to injunct Quayson, whose position as an MP has been in dispute since he assumed his seat in January 2021, from going to Parliament.
