Following the Supreme Court decision on May 17 that deemed Mr. Quayson’s prior election invalid and forbade him from retaining the seat, he was successful in his election.

He was able to win back his seat in the by-election, and he now serves as Assin North’s representative.

Prior to Mr. Quayson’s oath of office, John Dramani Mahama, the former president, and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) leadership stormed Parliament in a show of support, underscoring the significance of the event.
