ASPIRANTS AS A MEMBER OF PALAIMENT IN THE DECEMBER 2012 ELECTIONS IN GHANA
CAMPAIGN – Overview
Assin North now Assin Central is one of the constituencies represented in the Parliament of Ghana. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. The Assin North constituency is located in the Assin North district of the Central Region of Ghana.
Members of Parliament
Election Member Party

Francis K. Edzii National Convention Party

1996
Florence Kumi National Democratic Congress

2000
Ken Ohene Agyapong New Patriotic Party

The above list show from 1992 to date, only one women has become an MP but with the local level we have not gotten any women to head the District. Our current MP has been in power for the past 12years and we need a change for a woman to stand for the MP. I was the organizer for the concern youth of Assin. The concerns rise by youth is a clear indication that they need a change but honestly our current MP s is financial sound, therefore during elections, he is able to influence Voters. I am a regular member of a radio talk show and have listen to the concerns of the youth and the community.
I was part of the group that put together the YOUTH MANIFESTO which will be launch at YES Ghana conference from the 30TH October 2012 to 1ST November 2012. I am the founder of a local NGO based at Assin Foso in the central Region of Ghana. I have through personal effort done a lot of work in my community without any external support.
THE Rationaleas Women MP
In a typical election year Men has always stood for political position more that their women counterpart this has limited the confidence of women in these position. Also some women are also challenge with the needed financial strength to compete with their male counterpart such as in this year’s 2012, political campaign. With the conviction and readiness to make a change Rosina Akourkor Teye presents herself as a key contestant in the 2012 elections as an Honourable member of parliament for the…… the PPP manifestoes OUTLINES Jobs for the youth, however based the directions and bad campaign tactics many of the young people do not see where their hope and future lies; another worrying trend. Rosina Akourkor Teye believes that the young people of Ghana deserve the best and it is only when she is voted as the MP for the Assin Central. That this can exclusively be achieved under the PPP this will go to encourage the youth of Ghana for a better tomorrow. The youth will then use the opportunity offered by the Female MP to ask certain critical questions and possibly make an input into what is best for them.
