The Supreme Court delivered its ruling on whether or not the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa should mount the witness box to be cross-examined in the ongoing election petition hearing.

This follows legal arguments by the lawyers for the 1st and 2nd respondents, Justin Amenuvor and Akoto Ampaw respectively, that the petitioner cannot compel their witnesses to testify.

The two counsels also moved to close their cases despite objections raised by the lawyer for the petitioner, Tsatsu Tsaikata.

The apex court subsequently set Thursday, February 11, to give its verdict.
