NDC’s Deputy Director of Legal Affairs says his party has no intention whatsoever to present a new candidate for any possible bye-election in the Assin North constituency after the court asked James Gyakye Quayson not to hold himself as a Member of Parliament (MP) for the area. 

 

Ahmed Mohammed Baba Jamal who represents the NDC on legal issues told NEAT FM’s morning show that despite the court’s verdict the party disagrees and will challenge the court in due time.

 

“There is a verdict but we [NDC] do not agree with the court,” he said.

 

A seven-member panel of the Supreme Court on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, ordered Parliament to blue-pencil the name of James Gyakye Quayson as a valid Member of Parliament.

 

The ruling further noted that Mr Quayson was not qualified at the time he contested the election in 2020.

 

The ruling has, however, paved the way for a bye-election in the consistency to elect a new Member of Parliament for the area.

 

But Baba Jamal said the NDC will again present the striped MP to contest the seat again.

 

"We are still presenting James Gyakye Quayson as our parliamentary candidate for Assin North bye-election.” He emphatically told the host of NEAT FM’s morning show, McJerry Osei Agyemang
