The Supreme Court is required to convey its decision on previous President John Mahama’s application to return his case in the matter of the December 2020 Presidential political race appeal.
The court yesterday heard contentions on the application by legal counselors for all the gatherings with the Electoral Commission and President Akufo-Addo’s legal advisors strongly restricted to the application.
The National Democratic Congress flagbearer and applicant for the situation, John Mahama, looked to persuade the Supreme Court board to permit him to re-open his case.
Be that as it may, legal counselors for the Electoral Commission (EC) and President Akufo-Addo raised a few counter-contentions clarifying why the candidate ought to be halted from resuming his case.
Akoto Ampaw, who is counsel for President Akufo-Addo, brought up that the leave the applicant is looking for is against legitimate cycles for confirmation of weight.
“This is an endeavor to call for additional proof, and he should be held to the standard on the condition to be met to show additional proof,” he demanded.
The attorney for the EC, Justin Amenuvor, likewise said the application being looked for by Mr. Mahama ought to be denied on the grounds that it is “a maltreatment of the court measures” since resuming of cases to summon an observer has never occurred in a court.
However, Mr. Mahama’s attorney, Tsatsu Tsikata contended that he needed to call Jean Mensa, the EC Chairperson, as an “unfavorable observer”.
He again focused on that not being conceded the chance to have the EC Chair interviewed will be an attack against the current question.
This current daytime’s decision will give lucidity on the following headings of the court.
In the interim, the previous mandate for the gatherings to record their composed locations by Wednesday, February 17 remaining parts viable.
