The Ghanaian political science lecturer at the University of Ghana, Legon, Ransford Gyampo, has had his say on the streak of losses suffered by the petitioners in every motion raised so far at the Supreme Court in the 2020 election petition hearing.
In a Facebook post, Ransford Gyampo said that one party is losing every motion inside the Court, pointing to the NDC, but the same party, he believes, is winning every motion outside of the confines of the Court.
He stated further that the eventual victors would have a taste of defeat in their victory as the eventual losers would also have a taste of victory in their defeat.
Ransford Gyampo believes that we have a complex situation on our hands, but the outcome is going to have what he says are tremendous impacts on political parties and their purpose.
“One party is losing every motion at the court. Yet it is winning every motion outside the court.
Once again, it’s gonna be a victory with a taste of defeat and a defeat with a taste of victory.
It’s a more complex situation rather than the usually typical partisan propaganda. Outcomes would have both tremendous and fascinating impact on the fundamental purpose for which true political parties worth their salt, are established,” Ransford Gyampo posted on his Facebook wall.
The NDC have lost several motions in the ongoing election petition hearing at the Supreme Court with the latest one being a dismissal by 7–0 of their bid to have the electoral commission chairperson to mount the witness box to get cross-examined.
