DAY 3 Of 2020 Election Petition Hearing

The third sitting of the Supreme Court hearing of the 2020 Presidential election petition has started in earnest.

Already, lawyers for John Dramani Mahama, the Petitioner have filed a motion for review of the court’s ruling on Tuesday on the dismissal of the interrogatories. This move follows the dismissal of John Mahama’s legal team’s earlier motion seeking leave to ask the EC some 12 questions.

They have also filed a new motion at the Supreme Court asking the Electoral Commission (EC) to furnish them with all 275 original copies of constituency collation forms for the presidential election.

Mahama’s motion also has five other requests from the EC, which include the original Constituency Presidential Election Results Summary Sheets and the Regional Presidential Election Results Collation Forms.

The Electoral Commission (EC) declared President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) the winner of the 2020 polls, however, Mr Mahama disagrees with the figures put out by the Chair of the Commission.

John Mahama, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Presidential Candidate is, therefore, seeking a rerun of the election because he believes no candidate won the polls.

The court is expected to hear the case and give a ruling within a period of 42 days.
