Assin North By-election : We May See A Repeat Of Ayawaso - Political Science Lecturer

A senior lecturer at the University of Ghana Political Science Department, Dr. Alidu Seidu has warned that, there could be a repeat what happened during the Ayawaso West Wuogon By-election in the Assin North Constituency.

According to Dr. Alidu Seidu, this is because, the stakes will be high in the Assin North Constituency if a By-election is to be held between the two major parties, the NDC and the NPP.

He explained that, this is because the NDC will do everything possible to retain the Assin North seat in the event of a By-election, same way the NPP will want to snatch the seat from the NDC.

He also suggested that, if there is going to be a level playing field, the current Member of Parliament is likely to win the seat of he contest, but added that, if the ruling NPP decides to bring all the State Machinary to Assin North, it may win the seat.

He is however of the view that, should the state decide to bring all Machinary to the Constituency, the stakes will be very high.

Elections in the Assin North Constituency was declared null and void after a Cape Coast High Court ruled yesterday that, MP was not qualified at the time of contesting the seat as he holds Citizenship for both Ghana and Canada at the time.
