The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed confidence in winning the Kumawu seat during the upcoming by-elections. The party claims to be unperturbed by the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) actions, as it has already conducted its primary and chosen its candidate. The NDC has intensified its campaign in the area and remains steadfast in its determination to win the seat.
The Ashanti regional chairman of the NDC, Augustus Nana Akwasi Andrews, has accused the government of hastily constructing roads within Kumawu due to the upcoming by-election. He also dismissed claims that the NDC is sponsoring an independent candidate, stating that the party already has a candidate who is going unopposed for the seat. Andrews promised to do everything possible to win the Kumawu seat, adding that the NDC has a better track record than the NPP in the area.
In a related development, Ernest Yaw Anim, the NPP’s parliamentary candidate-elect for the Kumawu constituency, has promised to unite the party to win the seat during the May 23 by-election. Anim emerged victorious in the NPP’s internal poll held in the constituency, beating off competition from his closest contender, Ama Serwaa, and three others. Anim has pledged to do everything possible to ensure the NPP retains the Kumawu Parliamentary seat in the upcoming by-election.
