A Wenchi High Court in the Bono East Region presided over by Frederick Arnold Kwasi Nawura has on Tuesday January 5, 2021, dismissed an application for Injunction by Christopher Bayere for the swearing-in of the Member of Parliament (MP)-elect for the Techiman South Constituency, Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah .
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) after declaration of the results by EC argued that it won the Techiman South Parliamentary election, but the Electoral Commission (EC) and the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) connived to rig them of the success chalked in Techiman South Constituency.
However, the Electoral Commission insists that the NDC never won the seat like they are making some sections of Ghanaians believe.
Ahead of Thursday, January 7, 2021 swearing-in of Members of Parliament (MP)-elect, the NDC applied for an injunction on the swearing-in of the NPP Candidate, Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah.
But the Wenchi High Court has dismissed the application that will prevent the process from going on.
The action of the court now paves the way for Mr Korsah to be sworn in on Thursday January 7 as the lawmaker for the people of Techiman South
Speaking to Kwame Boakye, the host of Oman Nkommo on Radio Link in Techiman after the court’s ruling, a legal Team Member for Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah, Lawyer Kwabena Asare Atua said the Judge in his ruling stated that he refuses the Ex Parte injunction application. “As far as Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah has been gazetted, he is the elected Member of Parliament for the people of Techiman South and until they produce any evidence to the contrary.”
“I think the people of Techiman South need a representative at the swearing-in. To Put an injunction on the 1st respondent will be unfair,” the Judge said at the end of the trial Lawyer Asare Atua stated.
