The party believes it won the Techiman South Parliamentary election as it accused the Electoral Commission (EC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) of conniving to rob them of their victory.

The suit called on the court to annul the declaration of the NPP’s Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah as Techiman South MP.

The NDC rather prayed the court to declare Dr Christopher Beyere Baasongti as the legitimate winner of the Techiman South 2020 parliamentary elections.
