The Supreme Court of Ghana is set to pass judgment on the election 2020 petition by tomorrow 4th March 2021.
This follows the filing of the final address statement by the petitioner John Dramani Mahama after the court dismissed his application to reopen his case.
On 9th December 2020, the Electoral Commission declared the presidential election results, then on the 10th December 2020, a purported unsigned press release was released by the chairperson Mrs. Jean Aduikwe Mensa correcting the results declared on 9th December 2020.
Former president John Daramani Mahama and the NDC party rejected the results and processed them to court on December 30th, 2020.
The case John Mahama took to the Supreme Court was basically for the court to declare that none of the candidates ( he, John Dramani Mahama and Nana Akufo Addo) obtained 50 percent plus 1 valid vote cast per the article 63(3) of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana and therefore there must be reruns of the Elections.
And that the returning officer of the Election Jean Mensa did not conduct the Elections fair, well, and transparent in accordance to C.I 127 and the 1992 Constitution of Ghana therefore the Supreme Court should make a declaration on that.
The court after hearing from the petitioner, 1st respondent, and 2nd respondent set 4th March as the day to pass final judgment on the petition, though witness to the 1st respondent declined to be crossed examined in the process.
