Parliamentary candidate for Techiman South Constituency on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has filed a petition before the Wenchi High Court.
Christopher Beyere has asked that he is declared the winner of the December election for the constituency.
In his petition, he wants the court to declare that the gazetting of Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah as the winner is null and void.
“That per the pink sheets, the Petitioner got from the agents at each of the 267 polling stations, the petitioner garnered 50,306 votes in the parliamentary election at the Techiman South Constituency whilst the 1st Respondent got 50,013 votes,” portions of the petition indicated.
Mr Beyere further prays the court to declare “that all actions taken by the said returning officer as well as by the 2nd Respondent consequent upon the said declaration of the 1st Respondent as the winner of the parliamentary election are all void”.
Techiman South forms part of the constituencies which the opposition NDC believes to have won in the just-ended elections.
The area’s parliamentary elections were characterised by violence when a clash ensued between some supporters of political parties and security agencies during the collation of the results.
Two people died in the violence.
