Bede Zedieng Confident Of Winning

Bede Zedieng, Parliamentary candidate for the Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) for the Lawra/Nandom Constituency, says he is not an underdog as far as the race for the parliamentary seat in the constituency is concerned.

He said he had kept faith with the people and done enough work to enable him to win the seat.

"Lawra and Nandom is not the action spot as it has been painted. I have visited more communities in the constituency than any other candidate and from the reception accorded me wherever I went, I am convinced that the seat would be mine" he said confidently.

In an interview with the Daily Graphic, Mr Zedieng described himself as the only compromise candidate among the other contestants, and pointed out that it was clear that this time round the parliamentary candidate from the area must come from a certain traditional area.

He said Dr Kumbuor, the incumbent from Nandom, has served for two terms and therefore the time had come for the Lawra area to be also represented.

"I am the most seasoned and the most tested as far as mainstream politics is concerned". Mr Zedieng added.

Throwing more light on his vision for the people of the constituency if he got the nod to represent them in parliament, the DFP General Secretary gave the assurance that he would work to eradicate hunger and poverty from the area.
