The National Democratic Congress(NDC), has withdrawn its suit against the Electoral commission of Ghana(EC) concerning the Techiman south parliamentary seat in the Bono-East region. According to the party, it has no evidence to pursue the case.
Last week, the NDC leveled several allegations against the EC in a series of press conferences after the NPP candidate, Martin Adjei-Korsah was declared MP elect. The party claimed they were no collation and declaration of the parliamentary results in the constituency as the EC wants the whole country to believe.
However, in a sudden turn of event, the party has ran back to the Sunyani High court this morning to withdraw the suit.
Speaking to Accra-based FM this morning, lead member of the NDC legal team, Baba Jamal said the latest decision is as a result of the fact that the party has no evidence to back their claims in court.
“They started with the collation and stopped when the confusion started so we were unable to sign the documents but the returning officer 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 intentions we were refused documents?”
“You don’t go to court empty-handed. We go with evidence. We don’t have the 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.
