The Minority in Parliament is demanding the collation of Techiman South Constituency Presidential and the Parliamentary elections results with immediate effect.
The demand, contained in a petition signed by The Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu, addressed to The EC boss, Jean Mensa said “we demand that you cause to be collated the Techman South Constituency Parliamentary and Presidential Elections Results from all the Two Hundred and Sixty-Six (266) Polling stations in accordance with the law, with immediate effect”.
He stated that, in pursuant to regulation 43 (2) of C. l. 127, “the endorsed writ, gazette notification and notice to Clerk of Parliament be amended accordingly to reflect the true state of affairs”.
The NDC accused the officials particularly the Returning officer for declaring the NPP Parliamentary candidate as a winner of the polls without recourse to lay down procedures including collation.
Mr. Iddrisu who led his colleagues to March from Parliament to EC Headquarters to demonstrate their anger, has acknowledged the fact that, “this petition is without prejudice to further action we are determined to carry out in respect of the multiple Presidential Declarations and other constituencies in dispute”.
He also said they are “fully aligned with the contention of John Dramani Mahama and The National Executive Committee of the NDC that the results of the presidential elections stand rejected”.
Early in the day of Tuesday 22nd, MPs were prevented entry to The Electoral Commission’s office by gun welding police officers.
The Minority earlier forced their ways through the barricade mounted at the Liberation Circle leading to EC office.
The police later blocked the MPs near The EC Office and denied them entry for the reason that, “here is a security zone”.
