A number of closely fought parliamentary elections are being contested by the losing candidates who are calling for a re-collation of polling station results.

The runners up in these constituencies have refused to sign and thus certify the final result sheets. They have however been speaking to local radio stations arguing their case for rejecting the outcome of the polls in their respective constituencies.

The contested seats include Sekondi constituency in the Western Region which is being disputed by the NDC?s Anthony Cudjoe, the Chief Executive for the Metropolis. He is disputing that the incumbent Paa Owusu Ankomah won. Mr. Cudjoe, according to the provisional results lost by about a thousand votes.

In the Tema East in the Greater Accra, the NDC candidate who is also the Chief Executive for that Metropolis Kempis Ofosu Ware is contesting the results which he lost by only 3 votes to the NPP?s Titus Glover.

Former Information Minister in the NPP era, Stephen Asamoah Boateng failed in his comeback bid to beat the Deputy Central Regional Minister, Acquinas Quansah to the Mfantseman constituency seat in the Central Region. Mr. Asamoah Boateng lost by 2,361 votes.
