Ahead of this morning’s Presidential election petition hearing at the Supreme Court, the National Democratic Congress’ 2020 flagbearer, John Mahama was in Court to witness proceedings.
He was accompanied by his lawyers and party aficionados to file a motion to correct mistakes in his earlier petition to the court.
The court has granted their request and asked that the corrected petition be submitted at 4pm today.
The case was adjourned to Tuesday, January 19, 2021.
This forms part of Supreme Court hearings on the presidential election petition brought before it by John Mahama who is asking the court to annul the election results and allow a run-off between himself and the New Patriotic Party’s Nana Akufo-Addo.
Meanwhile, the President, Nana Akufo-Addo, and the Electoral Commission led by its Chairperson, Jean Mensa have asked the Supreme Court to dismiss the election petition, describing it as “incompetent, frivolous and vexatious”.
The respondents have, therefore, served notice of an initial objection to be raised urging the apex court to dismiss the petition and are calling for a date to be fixed for the legal arguments.
