Former Deputy Attorney General, Dr. Dominic Akuritinga Ayine says the 12 interrogatories put together by the legal team of John Mahama to the Electoral Commission are very relevant to the election petition process.
According to him, statements that the questions are a ploy to delay court proceedings are false and seek to undermine the entire election petition.
“It’s false because if you watch proceedings that day, Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata took time to take the court through all the 12 questions that he had filed to be administered to the Electoral Commission.
“Then also, very importantly, the lawyer for the Electoral Commission, Justin Amenuvor on his feet said that the answers we are seeking are found in their answer which means that they are relevant to the process,” he said.
Lawyers for the petitioner, John Mahama are asking the EC to answer, among others, how the Chairperson of the EC, Jean Mensa, arrived at the figures she used in declaring candidate Nana Akufo-Addo as the winner of the 2020 presidential poll.
