Politician Gyakye Quayson has been elected as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin North, solidifying his position as the representative of the constituency in the august house of Ghana’s Parliament.

Quayson’s triumph in the recently held by-elections has ignited celebrations among his supporters.

The highly anticipated by-election was necessitated by a Supreme Court ruling in the case challenging the eligibility of the previous MP, James Gyakye Quayson, who was accused of holding dual citizenship.

The court declared the seat vacant, leading to the need for a by-election to determine the new representative for the Assin North constituency.

Gyakye Quayson, who is a member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), secured a resounding victory by amassing a significant margin of votes at  17,245 votes representing 57.56% of the valid votes

Upon hearing the news of his victory, Gyakye Quayson expressed his gratitude to the people of Assin North for their unwavering faith in him. In his victory speech, he vowed to work tirelessly to fulfill the promises he made during his campaign, focusing on the pressing issues that affect the constituency.

Quayson, an experienced political figure with a background in law, has highlighted his key priorities, including infrastructure development, education, healthcare, and job creation. He has pledged to collaborate with stakeholders, both within and outside the constituency, to drive progress and improve the living conditions of the people of Assin North.

The election of Gyakye Quayson as the MP-elect has also invigorated the National Democratic Congress, which sees this victory as a significant step towards its overall mission of promoting the welfare of Ghanaians.

The party has hailed the election outcome as a clear reflection of the electorate’s trust and confidence in the NDC and its vision for a prosperous Ghana.

Through the election, Gyakye Quayson will join the ranks of Ghana’s distinguished lawmakers, ready to contribute to the nation’s legislative agenda and advocate for the needs and aspirations of the people he represents.

As he embarks on this new chapter in his political career, the eyes of Assin North and the nation as a whole will be keenly observing his efforts to effect positive change and drive progress in the constituency.‏
