Published

on


An EC official at ‘Borla k3se3 ho’, a polling station in Kwadaso in the Ashanti Region has been badly manhandled after it was alleged that he deliberately refused to stamp ballot papers before handing it to voters.

Angel FM 102.9 FM reports that a voter first raised the concern, and her concern was corroborated by other voters to the effect that their ballot papers were not stamped.

Following confirmation that the officer was indeed not stamping ballot papers, angry voters accosted the officer in question, manhandling him in the process.

The NDC and NPP agents at the polling station subsequently came to the agreement that all ballot papers which were not stamped will be counted as valid.

Supreme Court Orders Mahama’s Lawyers To Comply With Their Orders By Wednesday Or Face Sanctions

Published

on


The Seven-member Supreme Court panel hearing the 2020 Election Petition has ordered the legal team of John Mahama to comply with its orders and file their witness statements by close of Wednesday.

The Court also warned that failure to comply with their order will attract sanctions as imposed by law.

The caution follows an explanation by Counsel for the Petitioner, Tony Lithur that they had opted not to file witness statements as ordered by the court due to pending applications earlier filed.

According to him, Mr. Mahama has filed a stay of proceedings along with an application for the apex court to review the dismissal of his permission to serve the EC some 12 interrogatories.

However, the court insisted that it’s earlier order must be complied with, failure of which can result in the dismissal of the petition.

Just In: Mahama’s Lawyer Hot In Court For Failing To Obey The Orders Of The Supreme Court

Published

on


Tony Lithur, lawyer for the petitioner in the 2020 Election Petition, John Dramani Mahama has come under severe fire this morning at the Supreme Court following his team’s failure to comply with the order of the Apex Court.

Legal team for John Mahama failed to comply with an order of the Supreme Court which instructed them to file witness statements pending the hearing of the substantive petition.

According to Mr Lithur, their failure to comply with the order of the Court is because of their review of the court’s earlier decision on their interrogatories.

However, a visibly unenthused seven-member panel would have none of the excuses.

After minutes of back and forth between the bench and Mr Lithur, the court has suspended sitting briefly to consider the issues.

Dismiss Mahama’s Review Application And Charge Him Money For Wasting The Court’s Time – Akufo-Addo’s Lawyer Tells Supreme Court

Published

on


Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his lawyers have opposed the review application by former President John Dramani Mahama for a review of the Supreme Court ruling on his interrogatories.

In his affidavit in opposition to the application, Akufo-Addo, the 2nd Respondent in the petition before the apex court said the review application should “be dismissed with punitive costs”

A seven-member panel of the Supreme Court on Tuesday, January 19, refused to grant a request by the petitioner to serve the EC with some 12 interrogatories it found relevant to the petition.

Following the dismissal of the motion, the petitioner has applied to the court for a review of that decision.

However, Mr Akufo-Addo in his response to the motion for review said ” from the ratio of decided cases, it is immaterial if the petitioner considers the decision of the ordinary court to be wrong in law and hold any other reason apart from what he has stipulated in rule 54 of the Supreme Court Rules 1996 (CI 16).

“Based on the strict conditions set out in Rule 54 of CI 16 and the plethora of authorities that elucidate that Rule, we submit that the petitioner has not satisfied the court that he ought to be granted a review of the ruling delivered on 19th January 2021.”

He, therefore, prayed for the instant application to be dismissed with punitive costs.

The panel of seven presided over by Chief Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah are expected to consider the issues in Tuesday’s sitting.
