Techiman South: NDC Can’t Sue EC Without Evidence – Baba Jamal

The National Democratic Congress(NDC) has withdrawn its suit against the Electoral Commission(EC) concerning Techiman South parliamentary election results in the Bono East Region

Until the morning of Monday, December 14, 2020, a Writ of Mandamus to compel the EC to re-collate and re-declare the results was expected to be filed at the court.

The NDC in a series of press conferences last week, made several claims only to be hit recorded video evidence of Collation and declaration.

It is not clear what’s next for them.

After the declaration of  Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah as the MP-elect for the constituency the NDC and its candidate led blistering attacks on electoral officers, security personnel, and some media men who were also not spared instead resorted to violence and intimidation.

Speaking to the development on OKAY FM and monitored MyNewsGh’s Stephen Zoure –  a member of the NDC legal team Baba Jamal revealed that the latest decision the party was as a result of the fact that they do not have evidence to challenge the case in court.

“They started with the collation and stopped when the confusion started so we were unable to sign the documents but the Returning Officers said he reached out to us but we were not around. And we said fine just give us a copy of it whether we signed or not but he refused. Do you think it is with good intention we were refused documents?

“You don’t go to court empty-handed. We go with the evidence, we don’t have a summary sheet, declaration form and we don’t know what happened. How do we protest the results in court? Because we don’t have any evidence against the results?” He added.
