The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has officially stated that it will not partake in the Ejisu by-election slated for Tuesday, April 30, 2024.

The by-election has become necessary due to the passing of the incumbent Member of Parliament for the constituency and Deputy Finance Minister, Dr John Ampontuah Kumah on March 7, 2024, after a short illness.

The General Secretary of the NDC, Fifi Fiavi Kwetey, addressing the media and key participants at a program dubbed ‘Moment of Truth’ explained that the party is rather focusing on preparing for the main parliamentary elections in December this year and that is why the leadership of the party is not considering to partake in the Ejisu by-election.

“NDC will officially not be taking part in the Ejisu by-election. We have already set into motion processes leading to December 7, just a few months away. We want to continue those processes and ensure that come December 7, we are prepared to combat in all the constituencies and Ejisu will be one of them. So for this particular by-election, NDC will not be part of it. We are very confident about the processes we have in place. We just want to make sure we have the time to implement them fully. And between now and December 7, we will be in the position to make sure we are deploying everything that we have done so that really will be the way we want to go” he noted.

Currently, delegates of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Ejisu constituency have elected Kwabena Boateng, the second Vice Chairman for the party in the constituency last Saturday, April 13, 2024 as their candidate for the by-election.

The National Executive Committee (NEC) paved the way for nine aspirants to contest in the primary.

The other eight contestants were: Dr Evans Duah, Klinsman Karikari Mensah, Helena Mensah, Jacqueline Abena Pokua Amoah-Boaitey, Portia Baffoe Abronye, Lawyer Kwesi Nyantakyi(former Ghana Football Association President), Aaron Prince Duah and Yaa Akyawmaa Aboagye.

Meanwhile, all the defeated candidates have pledged to support the parliamentary candidate, Kwabena Boateng to win the by-election to be able to continue the good works of the deceased MP, Dr. Kumah.
