The Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu has insisted that the Electoral Commission must grant their request for re-collation of the parliamentary results in the Techiman South constituency.
The leader says just like the request for the New Patriotic Party was granted in the Banda constituency for re-collation, that of the NDC in Techiman South must be done.
He quizzed why the EC can not grant the NDC’s request.
He has also challenged the media to show proof of the declared parliamentary results which has gone in favour of NPP’s Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah.
He made the remarks when the Minority marched to the headquarters of the EC to present a petition in the matter.
They were prevented by the armed security personnel station there.
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 claimed 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, Rainbow Radio’s Philomina Kuntu Blankson reported.
“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 is 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.
