Campaigning for the Tuesday by-election in Talensi will be grinding to a halt today, Sunday July 5 as the two main parties, the ruling National Democratic Congress( NDC) and the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) are set to hold their final rallies.

Ahead of today, the two parties have been quarreling over the venue to hold the rallies. An emergency inter party meeting was held to resolve the venue impasse Saturday.

The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), the dominant opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), the People's National Convention (PNC) and the Progressive People's Party (PPP) are ready with their candidates for the bye-election slated for July 7, 2015.

For one thing, all the parties contesting the bye-election believe their candidates have what it takes to grab the Talensi seat.

The parties have described the by-election as a unique opportunity for them to capture the seat and go to Parliament.

While the NDC has a strong conviction that its candidate, Mr. B.T. Baba, 67, a retired Deputy Director General of the Ghana Prisons Service, can recapture the seat which, according to some NDC party faithful, "they gave to the NPP as a loan in 2012", the NPP also has confidence in Mr. Thomas Pearson Wuni, a 51-year-old accountant at the Nsawam Government Hospital, as the man who can convincingly win the seat for the party.
