We Will Not Contest Ejisu Parliamentary Seat – NDC

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ashanti Region has decided not to participate in the upcoming by-election for the Ejisu Constituency, set for April 30th.

Instead, the party will concentrate its efforts on the larger goal of the general elections scheduled for December 7th, 2024, unless there are any unexpected changes to the voting date by the Electoral Commission of Ghana.

Isham Alhassan, the NDC’s Ashanti Regional Organizer, explained the party’s decision, citing concerns about the unnecessary use of resources. He stated, “We don’t want to benefit from [John Kumah’s] death.

Looking at the time frame, if the Electoral Commission does not conduct the election before May, any political party who contests this election is just causing financial loss to the party.”

Alhassan emphasized the NDC’s commitment to securing victory for His Excellency John Mahama in the December elections, stating, “I am speaking with authority that the NDC will not contest this by-election.

We are winning the election for His Excellency John Mahama, so any preparation that we have is geared towards the December election, and that is our focus.”

The parliamentary seat became vacant following the passing of John Ampontuah Kumah, a Member of Parliament from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), on March 7, 2024, after a brief illness.
