James Gyakye Quayson was pronounced the winner of the Assin-North by-election by the returning officer, Kofi Tsibu, at the youth center in Assin Bereku.

Mr. Gyakye Quayson claimed that his victory was a victory for the good conscience of Ghanaians who did not let money dictate their decisions.

Charles Opoku, the candidate for the National Patriotic Party, came in second with 12,630 votes, or 42.15% of the total valid votes cast, while Quayson won with 17,245 votes, or 57.56%.

Sefenu Bernice Enyonam, the candidate for the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), received 87 votes, or 0.29%.

Mr James asserted he was undisturbed by the outcome of the election because he knew he had the backing of his constituents, the NDC society, and even some NPP members.

He promised to collaborate with the NDC and his people in order to hasten the development of the region, because to him the victory represented a renewal of faith in him.

Out of the total 30,418 votes cast, 29,962 were deemed valid, giving a turnout of 74.23%.
