"The NDC has dominated Bia West constituency since 1993, it won all the parliamentary elections, but I made an effort in 2020 by increasing the NPP votes in previous elections from 11,000 to 19,000 votes, which should be a strong signal to NDC that the NPP can make a difference in the 2024 elections."

Mr. Blay pointed out that he had impacted the lives of many within the constituency and was optimistic of winning the parliamentary elections in order to make the party attractive especially to non-party members.

Nana Emuye, election committee chairman, for his part appealed to the aspirants to advise their supporters to run a clean campaign since that was an internal election but reserve their energies for the main battle against their main opponent the NDC in 2024 elections.
