The raging confusion over the parliamentary results of Techiman South Constituency which has been declared by the Electoral Commission(EC) in favour of Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah is far from over.
While the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is laying claim to the seat insisting the collation was characterized by widespread irregularities for which reason the Deputy Minister for Regional Reorganisation and Development won, there appear to be inconsistencies in its figures bandied around.
According to the Electoral Commission, Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah polled 49,682 votes as against 49,205 votes for Christopher Beyere for the NDC.
General Secretary of the NDC on December 10, 2020 also claimed the NDC candidate polled 50,569 votes and NPP’s 49,874 votes a difference of 695
Leader and flagbearer of the NDC John Dramani Mahama on the 11th of December, 2020 claimed the NDC candidate polled 50, 417 and NPP’s 49,825 votes, a difference of 592
But Christopher Beyere himself on Joy midday news while speaking to Opoku Gakpo said he had won with 700 votes but later on same day on Joy Newsnight when asked again he said he be given 2 minutes to look for it and returned with 50,420votes for himself and NPP 49,825 votes for the NPP’s candidate
The minority leader Haruna Iddrisu, on the other hand, is claiming that per their collations, the NDC polled 50,306 votes as against 50,013 for the NPP accusing the EC of rigging the polls in favour of Mr. Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah.
Meanwhile, the New Patriotic Party(NPP) is advising the NDC to proceed to the High Court if it is determined to challenge the outcome of the parliamentary rather than resorting to press conferences.
