We’ll not contest Ejisu by-election – NDC

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has formally announced that it will not contest the upcoming Ejisu by-election scheduled for April 30, following the unfortunate passing of the constituency’s Member of Parliament, John Ampontuah Kumah.

Fifi Fiavi Kwetey, the General Secretary of the NDC, clarified that the party’s focus is on preparing for the main parliamentary elections in December, rather than diverting efforts towards the by-election.

Last Saturday, April 13, delegates from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the constituency elected Kwabena Boateng, the second Vice Chairman of the party in the constituency, as their candidate for the by-election.

During a media interaction, Fifi Fiavi Kwetey reaffirmed the NDC’s decision to abstain from the by-election, emphasizing their dedication to groundwork for the December polls.

“NDC will officially not participate in the Ejisu by-election. We have already initiated processes leading up to December 7, which is just a few months away. Our goal is to continue these processes and ensure that by December 7, we are fully prepared to contest in all constituencies, including Ejisu. Therefore, for this specific by-election, NDC will not be involved. We have great confidence in our current strategies and aim to implement them comprehensively before December 7. By then, we will be fully equipped to execute our plans,” stated Fifi Fiavi Kwetey.
