The 2020 Flagbearer of the NDC John Dramani Mahama has argued that the Supreme Court’s denial of his application to question the Electoral Commission will damage his case.
This is contained in a fresh application filed by Mr Mahama seeking to halt the election petition until the Supreme Court reverses its ruling and allow the EC to answer the 12 questions or interrogatories.
The Supreme Court dismissed the application by the legal team of Mahama seeking to pose these 12 interrogatories to the EC with the explanation that they failed to convince the court of the relevance of their questions.
The new application by Mr Mahama describes the ruling by the Supreme Court “a serious miscarriage of justice which we expect to have remedied in the review.”
“At the hearing of this application, counsel will crave the indulgence of the Court to refer to the statement of the case in support of the application for review, particular, to show that there are indeed serious matters of law that are to be determined in this review application, and I am likely to succeed, as the ruling of the court is manifestly in error.”
Mr Mahama believes the court allowing him to pose these questions to the EC will facilitate the election petition case before it.
