NPP to contest Savelugu parliamentary result in court, says John Boadu

The general secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) says the decision to go to court is to help reduce tension in the country

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) would be contesting the Savelugu parliamentary result in court, John Boadu, the general secretary of the party has said.

The decision of the NPP follows an alleged over-voting incident in one polling station in the Savelugu constituency where an electoral official who voted in the Special Voting, is alleged to have voted again on 7 December.

“Obviously this is an infraction to our laws. We believe that the law would take its course in terms of making sure that he [electoral officer] is apprehended and dealt with. But in the interest of peace, we think that we should move on,” John Boadu said in an exclusive interview with Asaase radio.

Boadu added: “The leadership of the party think in the interest of the nation because this particular polling station by extension is holding the whole nation and it’s causing tension. We think we should go ahead and declare the Savelugu contest under protest…so we will take it up in the law court.”

The party agents of both the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress have refused to sign the parliamentary and presidential declaration forms in Savelugu in the Northern region.

This action according to sources is what is preventing the Electoral Commission (EC) from declaring the national results.
