The Parliamentary Candidate for the New Patriotic Party in Bongo, Diana Aburiya Asuure, has appealed to constituents to give her the nod to lead the constituency as the December 7, 2024, parliamentary election approaches.

Miss Asuure, speaking on the Day Break Upper East Show today, January 23, 2024, hopes to become a champion for women and youth once she is voted into office. She argues that since women constitute a larger population in the country and in the Bongo constituency, there should be increased women representation at the decision-making level to influence decisions that support the growth and prosperity of women and young people.

“If you look at women in the country and the world, the population is larger. In the Bongo district, particularly, it is evident that women outnumber men. Once women constitute a majority, decisions about women should at least have the input of women. If you have a larger population whose fate would be decided by a minority group, I think it doesn’t speak well.”

“You know, issues of men are different from issues of women. Women know their problems better and would be able to articulate them more than men. So my persistence has been the fact that as a woman, I want to represent my constituency and represent the majority, which is women. Being the voice of the majority, I understand the issues that concern us and what can be done to address them.”

Miss Asuure explains that if the lives of women are improved through targeted programs and policies, it also positively affects the lives of their children, thereby benefiting the youth and men in society as well.

The PC for the NPP in Bongo continues to say that to help increase women representation at the decision-making level, she has been using her influence to encourage more women to get involved in politics.

“I have been encouraging other women to be interested in politics because that is where their inputs can be heard and addressed. If we shy away from politics and continue to face these problems, how are we going to resolve them or have them resolved? That has been my interest.”
