Earlier this morning, a high Court in Wenchi dismissed the case brought before it by the NPP’s Parliamentary Candidate, Joseph Markay Kuma whiles slapped him with an amount of GHc 14,000.00 for wasting its time.
Mr. Joseph Markay Kuma had filed the suit against the NDC and the Electoral Commission claiming the election was fright with electoral irregularities in the Sene West constituency.
The case he brought before the court a few days after the election, was praying the court to put injection on the counting of ballot papers from a polling station that is in contention between the NPP, the EC, and the NDC.
The said ballot box was snatched away and returned by NPP supporters which had only the seals of the NPP and EC broken but the NDC’s remain intact. This caused the EC and the NDC to agree on not counting ballots from that Box, however, the NPP thought otherwise and moved to place an injection on the counting of the ballot papers of that polling station, sources disclosed.
Meanwhile, the culprit of the dastard act has been jailed for three | 3| months.
Lawyers of the plaintiff were Nana Sekyere Boateng and Obiri Boahen whereas the defendant was represented by Kojoga Adawudu and Ofosu Agyare.
The court today did not only charge the plaintiff but threw out the case brought against EC and the NDC on the Sene West Parliamentary Elections by the NPP for lack of merit.
