The State has sued the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, and 10 other members of the minority caucus in Parliament over their march to the Electoral Commission’s head office in Accra on Tuesday, December 22, 2020.
The suit accused the 11 legislators of holding such an event without notifying the police.
It also said the NDC MPs’ action was an unlawful Assembly.
The Minority caucus led by its leader Haruna Iddrisu on Tuesday, December 22, 2020, stormed the premises of the Commission to present a petition over the results of the 2020 presidential and parliamentary polls.
They are in particular challenging the results of the Techiman South Parliamentary polls.
The Caucus in the six-pager petition is asking the EC to collate the Techiman South Constituency Parliamentary and Presidential Elections Results from all the Two Hundred and Sixty-Six (266) Polling stations.
“We demand that you cause to be collated the Techiman South Constituency Parliamentary and Presidential Elections Results from all the Two Hundred and Sixty-Six (266) Polling stations in accordance with the law, with immediate effect,” it states.
However, the legislators were met with resistance from the police officers who applied some force to stop them from going to the premises of the EC
