The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Assin North constituency has elected Charles Opoku to represent the party in the upcoming June 27th by-election.
Charles Opoku who was beaming with confidence ahead of today’s primaries polled 397 of the valid votes cast count to get the party’s nod in the Assin North by-election.
The other individual who also picked nomination forms to contest the Assin North Constituency parliamentary primary on the ticket of the NPP, Frederick Freeman Amoah-Kyei polled 136 with 3 rejected ballots.
This comes after Parliament declared the Assin North seat vacant following a Supreme Court ruling challenging the eligibility of James Gyakye Quayson to occupy the seat.
The Electoral Commission has since scheduled the by-election for Tuesday, June 27, 2023.
