(VIDEO) Chaos At Assin Bereku In Ongoing By-Election

Reports of fighting have emerged from Assin North in the Central Region, where a by-election is scheduled for today (June 27).

A video circulating on social media indicates chaos at an Assin Bereku polling station where two men could be seen in a brawl as a police officer tries to restore calm.

In the same video, a woman could be heard saying that the situation could turn bloody if care was not taken.


Before the elections, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr George Akuffo Dampare, held a meeting with stakeholders involved in the by-election about security arrangements.

Over 800 police officers have been deployed to the area.

In all, 41,168 voters across the 99 polling stations will gather at the Assin North constituency to vote for their preferred candidates.

It will be recalled that the constituency has garnered significant attention due to the unique circumstances surrounding the vacant parliamentary seat.

The legal challenges surrounding the eligibility of the deposed Member of Parliament, James Gyakye Quayson, necessitated the by-election.

Following allegations of false declaration of office and perjury, a court ruling deemed Mr Quayson’s election invalid, leading to the vacant seat and the subsequent need for a by-election.

Various political parties have been actively campaigning to secure the seat for their respective candidates.

The governing New Patriotic Party has the 40-year-old electrical Engineer Charles Opoku as their candidate, while the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has maintained James Quayson as their candidate.

Aside from these two big stalwarts, the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) has a candidate in the person of Bernice Enyonam Sefenu, offering voters a diverse range of choices.
