Courts affirms Adjei Korsah as MP-elect; boots out NDC Techiman South injunction

A Wenchi High Court in the Bono Region presided over Fred Nawura has dismissed an application for Injunction of the swearing-in of the Member of Parliament(MP)-elect for the Techiman South Constituency.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said that it won the Techiman South Parliamentary election but the Electoral Commission and the NPP connived to rid them of the success chalked in the election.

The largest opposition has allegedly provided evidence to back its claims that the party’s candidate Christopher Bayer Baasongti won the seat from the NPP.

However, the Electoral Commission insists that the NDC never won the seat like they are making some sections of Ghanaians believe.

Ahead of the swearing-in of Members of Parliament(MP)-elect, the NDC applied for an injunction on the swearing-in of the NPP Candidate Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah

But the Wenchi High Court has dismissed the application that will prevent the process from going on.

In his judgment, the trial judge is quoted to have said” I shall refuse the Ex Parte injunction application. I think the people of Techiman South need a representative at the swearing-in. To injunct the 1st respondent will be unfair. At the end of the trial, if it is established that the election was not done properly, I shall make my orders. I here refuse the application”
