Defeated Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram in the just ended NDC parliamentary primaries, Enoch Teye Mensah has vowed to challenge the outcome of the election in court.
The long-serving NDC MP maintained that the election was not “Free and Fair” – after claiming a massive rigging to favour his opponent, Sam George.
He however called on the Director of Elections in the NDC to with immediate effect investigate the unfortunate situation before he takes any legal action against the party.
“The election wasn’t free and fair. The party must investigate the election before it’s too late. I will petition the party’s national executives,” he said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’
Presidential staffer Sam George beat incumbent Member of Parliament for the Ningo-Prampram constituency Enoch Teye Mensah in parliamentary primaries of the ruling National Democratic Congress held last Sunday.
Sam George got 4,910 votes representing 63.5 percent of votes cast as against Mensah’s 2,831 36.5 percent.
Prior to the election, George claimed he was beaten by some men believed to be supporters of E.T. Mensah – the attack came several hours after elections were postponed in the constituency due to allegations of a tampered-with register, made by Sam George.
But after victory, the NDC Ningo-Prampram aspiring MP for 2016 has rendered an unqualified apology to Mr. Mensah beseeching him to join his campaign team and guide him as a parliamentary candidate.
However, E.T Mensah told NEAT FM’s morning show host, Kwasi Aboagye that – “I would have to discuss with my team as to whether to help Sam George or not. He tarnished my reputation.”
