The Wenchi High Court in the Bono Region on Tuesday, 5 January 2020, dismissed an application by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to place an injunction on the swearing-in of the MP-Elect for Techiman South, Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah.

The court, presided over by Fred Nawura, said it will be unfair to deny the Techiman South constituents an elected representative during Thursday’s swearing-in ceremony.

He said the case can be resolved if it is subsequently established that the election was not conducted properly as the NDC alleges.

The NDC claims it won the Techiman South seat with 50,306 votes while the NPP polled 50,013.

But the NPP said it won the seat with 49,682 votes as against the NDC’s 49,205 votes.
