Mr David Sei Demah, the 2020 Parliamentary Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the Bole- Bamboi Constituency in the Savannah Region is poised to snatch the Bole- Bamboi Seat from the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the NPP for the first time.
Since the inception of the fourth republic, the Bole- Bamboi Constituency has been held by the NDC, always winning both Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
Addressing party supporters on October 8, 2020, after successfully filing his nomination forms to enable him contest for the seat on the ticket of the NPP at the Bole District Electoral Commission’s Office, Mr David noted that the NDC and the MP, had done little for the people of Bole-Bamboi over the years and the mission to oust them had begun.
The Parliamentary Candidate added that the the current NPP Government within the last three and half years, had performed better than the eight years’ administration of the NDC and the people of the constituency were yearning for a change.
“That perception that the Bole-Bamboi constituency seat cannot be won by the NPP cannot be justified because the constituents are prepared to deliver the seat to the NPP because they have seen massive development dotted across the constituency and am confident of winning the seat come December 7”, David indicated.
He stressed that together with his party executives and supporters they will work hard to retain the NPP in Government and win the Parliamentary slot for the NPP for the first time.
“We are not just speaking to the people of Bole-Bamboi they have seen the development doted across their communities, our record speaks volumes and our record on December 7, will speak for us,” Mr Mahama Akati, the Savannah NPP Regional Youth Organizer noted.
Mr Akati told his party faithfuls to move all out to propagate the good works of of the NPP government and campaign for their Parliamentary Candidate as he describes him as a solid candidate who is ready to unseat the NDC in the Bole- Bamboi constituency.
Per Ghana’s electoral laws, aspirants seeking to contest Parliamentary and Presidential elections are required to file their nominations with the EC.
Over the years, the practice has been that aspirants or their representatives visit the offices of the EC at the District, Regional or National levels to pick the nomination forms, which are completed and filed at a later date.
The atmosphere on such occasions is usually charged, as they are characterised by drumming, singing, dancing and sloganeering.
The latest move by the EC is a departure from the old order to online system and implies that the euphoria and colour that come with the picking and filing of nomination forms will be absent.
The EC noted that the online system was the best foot the EC was putting forward to ensure efficiency and safety in this year’s electoral process, especially in the wake of the COVID-19.
