Assin North by-election: 41,000 people to cast ballots at 99 polling locations

A total of 41,000 voters are expected to vote in 99 polling stations in tomorrow’s by-election in the Assin North Constituency.

The election is necessitated by the Supreme Court’s ruling against the former MP, James Gyekye Quayson, for holding Canadian citizenship aside from that of Ghana.

The Assin North constituency over the past few weeks has seen a lot of political activities, with the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) formally ending their campaigns with rallies on Sunday, June 25, 2023, ahead of the election.

The NDC has retained Gyekye Quayson as its candidate though he is facing criminal charges over his 2020 Candidature.
