National Democratic Congress Member of Parliament for Assin North James Gyakye Quayson is insisting that he remains the legitimate MP for the constituency after he filed appeal processes today to challenge the Cape Coast Court order for re-run of crucial 2020 election.

I’ve good intentions to help the vulnerable, poor and needy in this community”.

Mr. Quayson who broke tears upon his interaction with residents said “have not breached any law. But, the fact is that whilst I’m making efforts to help my people, others are also attempting to thwart my efforts. But, it wouldn’t work.

National Chair of the party Samuel Ofosu Ampofo said we’ll support Quayson both legally and politically.

The NDC has earlier promised to pursue the matter to the Supreme Court.

Speaking moments after the verdict, the Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee Member Lawyer Dafeamakpor said “The party will pursue the matter to the Supreme Court and urged NDC Members to remain calm”.

Meanwhile, Director of International Affairs of NDC Alex Segbefia said three was deliberate attempt by the court registrar to prevent the party from filing a fresh process ahead of the verdict.
