New Patriotic Party (NPP) 2020 Parliamentary Candidate (PC) for Assin North Constituency, Abena Durowaa Mensah, is optimistic of winning hands down if she is contests the upcoming by-election.
Her comment comes after the Cape Coast High Court declared the 2020 parliamentary election held in the Constituency null and void.
The ruling was given on Wednesday, July 28, 2021, by the court presided over by Justice Kwasi Boakye.
In his judgment, Justice Boakye upheld that the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) 2020 parliamentary candidate for the constituency, Joe Gyakye Quayson, breached the provisions of the constitution with regard to dual citizenship.
The ruling means that the NDC’s seats in Parliament have dropped to 136 as against the NPP’s 137 until a by-election is held to determine who wins the seat.
But, reacting to the development on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem Thursday, Madam Mensah said she is prepared for anything and ready to lead his party if she is asked to.
