It has emerged that the Minority Leader of Parliament Haruna Iddrisu officially wrote to the Electoral Commissioner Mrs. Jean Mensa informing her of their intention to petition her office over the declaration of results in the Techiman South constituency.
The leader in his letter dated December 21, 2020, informed the EC Chair the MPs would be marching from Parliament to the EC to present their petition.
The Minority wants the EC to re-collate the results of the Techiman South constituency results because they believe Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah who represented the NPP did not win the election in the constituency.
There was a scuffle between the police and some NDC legislators who were walking from Parliament House to the offices of the Electoral Commission.
The police aimed the legislators should have sought permission before embarking on the March to the EC headquarters.
The scene was chaotic as the police were seen physically manhandling some of the MPs including Mr. Iddirisu, Rainbow Radio’s Philomina Kuntu Blankson noted.
“We are standing in denial by collusion of fraud by the Electoral Commission and the NPP. It is not acceptable, you know they are just joking with Techiman South, add it to their number and claim a false 137 which they don’t deserve their 136,” Mr Iddrisu said.
“If Techiman South results are not resolved amicably and satisfactorily in accordance with the laws of Ghana and in particular with regulation 43 of CI 127 and more emphatically collation than openly and transparently by EC and we remain in denial that we don’t have the results for Techiman South we will be thinking through what to do on January 7,” he said.
