Election Petition: It’s The Job Of The NDC To Provide Proof To Court Not EC – Lawyer Tweneboa Kodua

Published

on


Private Legal Practitioner, Lawyer Tweneboa Kodua Has stated that the burden of proof lies on the shoulders of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who are alleging of wrong figures from the Electoral Commission.

According to him, all political parties were furnished with copies of the form which has the total tally of the election results from across the country and argues, it is the responsibility of the NDC to produce their copy if they are contesting the outcome of the election.

Therefore, this situation puts the evidence act in the EC’s favour.

EVIDENCE ACT, 1975 (N.R.C.D. 323) SS 1(4) says; Where the Court determines that a party has not met the burden of producing evidence on a particular issue the Court shall, as a matter of law determine the issue against that party.

Speaking on Happy FM’s Epa Hoa Daben show, he explained that the party making the allegation is responsible for providing proof.

The NDC says the EC’s figures are wrong and yet, they have not presented a new one but they need to present that to prove it is contrary to what the EC declared. It seems the NDC came to court without the documents and want to claim the election data is wrong,” he was quoted by happyfm online.

“You say you have your own results and in accordance to CI 127, every party gets a copy of the final tally and results for the Presidential election and if you can’t bring your copy to prove your claim, then we, I mean the EC can’t do same. Just like Jesus said, give unto Caesar what is his and God His due”, he added.

Ablakwa And Okudzeto Were The Only NDC MPs Who Rejected Gov’t’s Bribe – Mugabe Maase Reveals

Published

on


There has been considerable controversy generated on social and mainstream media after Parliament, by a majority decision passed honourables; Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Hawa Koomson, and Dr. Afriyie Akoto.

The three appointees had initially been rejected by the minority MPs on the appointment committee for various reasons.

National communications officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi has described the leadership of the minority caucus in parliament as traitors in the aftermath of yesterday’s proceedings.

Pro-NDC journalist, Mugabe Maase has also muddied the waters by claiming that the minority MPs took an amount of 5 Million Cedis as bribe from the government in order to pass the appointees.

According to Mugabe, with the exception of MP for North Tongu, Okudzeto Ablakwa and MP for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhuyini, all the others took the bribe.

It is unclear if Mugabe’s claims are factual or inaccurate.
