James Gyakye Quayson, a troubled former member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who represented Assin North Constituency, has formally announced that he will run for office in the upcoming by-election under the NDC platform.

Due to the Supreme Court’s annulment of James Gyakye Quayson’s election, a by-election has been scheduled for Tuesday, June 27, 2023 by the Electoral Commission (EC).
