But a member of the NDC’s legal team, Rockson Nelson Defeamekpor, told the host of Newsfile, Samson Lardy Anyenini, that the party will be contesting both the presidential and parliamentary results.

‘We’ll go to court by Wednesday; all these matters would be placed before the court

He said

Rockson-Nelson Este Kwami Dafeamekpor also indicated that the Commission on multiple occasions flouted the laws governing the conduct of the election.

It is not about declaring the seat in our [NDC] favor, that is not what we’re saying. We’re saying [EC should] comply with the law. If you comply with the law and we emerge victorious that is fine. But you do not comply with the law and announce another candidate as the victor. No

He added
