Voting is underway in the Assin North constituency in the Central Region as over 40, 000 voters go to the polls today, Tuesday, June 27, to elect their next representative in Parliament.
Three candidates are vying for the seat: James Gyakye Quayson of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Charles Opoku of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), and Bernice Enyonam Sefenu of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG).
The Electoral Commission (EC) scheduled the by-election for June 27 following the nullification of the 2020 parliamentary election won by Mr Quayson.
The Supreme Court, by a unanimous decision, declared as unconstitutional the election of James Gyakye Quayson as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Assin North constituency and consequently ordered Parliament to expunge the name of the embattled legislator from its records as the Member of Parliament for the Assin North constituency on May 17.
All the candidates are hopeful of winning the election.
