Former President John Dramani Mahama, the Petitioner in the ongoing Election Petition, is seeking a review of the Supreme Court’s ruling against his motion to re-open his case.
The legal team of the Second Respondent (President Akufo Addo) in the ongoing Election Petition hearing at the Supreme Court has hinted of a possible subpoena to haul ex-President John Mahama (Petitioner) into the witness box to answer questions.
Having failed to secure a Supreme Court ruling to compel the Chairperson of the Electoral (EC), Jean Mensa, to enter to the witness box to be cross examined, Counsel for John Dramani Mahama (Petitioner), Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata, says they will explore other available options to press home their demand.
A request by John Dramani Mahama (Petitioner) inviting the Supreme to order the First Respondent in the 2020 Election Petition case (Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) and Returning Officer of the 2020 Presidential Election) to enter the witness box to be cross examined, has been turned down by the apex court.
The Electoral Commission has said the senior leadership of the Commission will still be at post despite the recess.
At least results from 14 regions have so far been collated and transmitted to the Electoral Commission in Accra, the EC Boss, Jean Mensa has announced.
At least 109,557 persons are expected to vote in Special Voting exercise being conducted by the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana on Tuesday, December 1, 2020.
