First vice Chair of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ofosu Ampofo has the loud decision by the People’s National Convention (PNC) to contest Tuesday’s Talensi by-election in court
He stated inasmuch as the PNC managed to come close to the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) in terms of perimeter does not essentially mean they should be quick to protest.
“We don’t have any issue with the PNC but if they are determined to compete in the election, then they are welcome. The results have already been declared and so they should take it in good faith but I think the PNC has no case at all” he said on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen Wednesday.
The former head of the Ghana Prisons Service (GPS), BT Baba secured the elections with 10,366 votes cast, representing 42.31% of the total votes cast as against Thomas Duanab’s (NPP) 6,845 representing 27.94% of the total votes.
The PNC candidate Wombeoto Namailteng garnered 6,836 representing 27.90% of the total votes cast followed by the PPP which had 214 votes representing 0.87%. The GFP polled 58 votes, NVP had 93, UPP managed 49 while the IPP got only 38 votes.
Bernard Mornah stated the Electoral Commission (EC) failed to even address appropriate concerns of arranging elevated at the various polling stations.
He has chosen to recount that to him was rejected by the EC a situation he added, has compelled them to contest the election in court.
But Ofosu Ampofo, the director of elections for the NDC advised PNC to forget the issue and up their game in the 2016 general elections since their margin in the just ended by-election was inspiring.
