Disputed Techiman South elections: NDC MPs boycott Martin Adjei Korsah's vetting

The Minority on the Appointments Committee of Parliament has boycotted the vetting of Techiman South Member of Parliament Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah.


The MP nominated as the deputy minister-designate for Local Government, Decentralization and Rural Development was expected to be vetted but the minority refused to recognise him as a legitimately elected member of Parliament.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) filed an interlocutory appeal against the decision by a Wenchi High Court that dismissed its application to amend portions of its petition against the results of the Techiman South parliamentary election on December 7, 2020.

The party is in court challenging the validity of the election of NPP’s candidate, Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah as MP for Techiman South.

They were challenging the election on grounds that there was no valid collation of results in the constituency and their own calculation favoured their candidate, Christopher Baasongti Beyere.
