Since the Asawase seat was created prior to the Ghanaian parliamentary election in 2004, it has been held by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) till date.
But a different story would soon be told as the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Mr. Bernard Antwi Boasiako, has hinted he has plans in place to annex the seat from the NDC for his party.
In an interview with OTEC FM ‘’Dwabrem programme’’, Mr. Bernard Antwi Boasiako alias Chairman Wontumi vowed to unseat the incumbent Member of Parliament for Asawase,
In his view, the current MP for the area doesn’t have a good record that bodes well for him for him to be retained in parliament.
“Do you remember Muntaka very well? If you don’t then I would want to tell you about this corrupt man. When he was the Minister of Youth and Sports, he did several bad things that can only be stored in sewage”.

Mr Bernard Antwi Boasiako, believes that the hard work the elephant family has done in the constituency coupled with the strategies they are implementing will clinch the seat from the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), promising that he would resign his post if Muntaka does not fall.

Commenting further, the NPP firebrand said the elephant family is poised to winning all the 47 parliamentary seats in the region, insisting that all the four seats currently being occupied by the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) will be won from them.
“Whatever they do, nothing will stop us from winning all the parliamentary seats in the Ashanti Region”, he stressed.
