Kumasi Dec. 14 GNA - The Ashanti Regional Executive of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has congratulated its supporters and parliamentary candidates in the parliamentary elections in the Region. A statement signed by Mr Kwame Nti-Fordjour, the NDC Regional Chairman, said the Party was proud of both those who won and lost the election for "putting up a good fight".
The NDC won only three out of the 39 parliamentary seats in Ashanti, which traditionally remained the stronghold of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The statement said, given the difficult conditions under which the NDC carried out its electioneering campaign, the votes recorded were remarkable.
"Even though we lost the election, we were never humiliated as we made a strong showing that surprised our political opponents". The NDC praised its rank and file for their hard work, firm support and resilience and asked them not to allow the electoral setback to dampen their spirit but to show courage, remain steadfast and resolute in their support for the Party.
The statement said: "Let us ensure that we stand solidly together and keep the spirit".
