The Ghana Police Service has increased its security presence in the Assin North Constituency by-election area in order to preserve peace and order throughout the vote process.

The officials of the Police service have faced various precautions to avoid any unexpected protests or electoral malpractices during the by-election, which is planned to take place on June 27, 2023.

The need for the by-election stems from a Supreme Court decision on April 13, 2023, which mandated that the name of James Gyakye Quayson, the then-member of Parliament for Assin North Constituency, be removed from parliament’s records for holding dual citizenship.

Meanwhile, the NDC still chose James Gyakye Quayson to stand as its parliamentary candidate in the by-election.

Gyakye Quayson, running for the NDC, will face Charles Opoku, running for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), and Bernice Enyonam Sefenu, running for the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), in the much anticipated by-election in Assin North, planned for June 27, 2023.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the NPP, John Dramani Mahama of the NDC, and Kofi Apkaloo, the founder and potential presidential candidate of the Liberal Party Ghana (LPG), have all visited the constituency to solicit support for their candidates in the by-election.
