The Electoral Commission (EC) has presented the original documents on the Techiman South parliamentary election to the Wenchi High Court.

The documents have since been inspected by the parliamentary candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Christopher Beyere Baasongti, who is challenging the results of the parliamentary election in the constituency.

The presentation of the documents to the court followed an order by the High Court.

The documents include the constituency collation sheet.

According to the General Secretary of the NDC, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia, they have since inspected the documents and made photocopies.

He said “the issues we have with the documents have been raised… It is just a simple process of EC producing originals of some documents for our inspection, so we have inspected and made photocopies.”

“The contents will be discussed when they [EC] are in the witness box,” Mr Asiedu Nketia said.

“They have provided us with the documents but we believe there are issues with the documents,” he added.

The case has been adjourned to April 29, 2021.

The court at its last sitting for the second time ordered the EC to produce the documents for the inspection by Mr Christopher Beyere Baasongti.

According to the court, the inspection of the documents were to be done at the Registry of the court on April 19, 2021, between 2pm and 4p.m.

The order was given following the inability of Mr Baasongti to obtain the original documents despite a previous order by the court on April 1 granting him the greenlight to inspect the documents.
