Mahama Arrives At The Supreme Court As Pre-Trial Hearing Begins Today

Published

on


The Supreme Court will today Tuesday, January 19, 2021, sit on a pre-trial conference for parties in the 2020 election petition case.

A pretrial conference is a meeting of the parties to a case conducted prior to trial. Parties at the pre-trial conference are expected to make available to each other all documents and evidence they hope to rely on when the trial begins as well as a list of witnesses they’ll call.

Meanwhile, former President John Dramani Mahama has filed two legal processes at the Supreme Court for certain answers from the Electoral Commission (EC) with regard to his presidential election petition.

Mr Mahama is seeking permission from the Supreme Court to allow him to elicit answers that border on how the Chairperson of the EC, Mrs Jean Adukwei Mensa, arrived at the figures she used in declaring President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the winner of the 2020 presidential poll.

Blame Yourself For Not Doing Your Work Properly In The Strong Room – Supreme Court Chastizes Kpessah Whyte And Mettle-Nunoo

Published

The justices of the supreme court have told witnesses of Mr John Dramani Mahama in the election petition, Mr Rojo Mettle Nunoo and Dr Michael Kpessa-Whyte to blame themselves for abandoning their duties in the strong room during the final collation of the election results if their claims are to be believed.

During proceedings, the two witnesses told the court that they were sent by the Chair of the Electoral Commission (EC) to Mr Mahama at the time of the collation of the final results in the strong room. In their absence, the results were then announced.

Delivering the judgment on Thursday, March 4 the court said “…Notwithstanding all these allegations of misunderstandings with the chair of the 1st respondent in the strong room and the fact that they were absent during the declaration, they did not give any indication as to how these happenings in their absence affected the final results announced by the 1st Respondent.

“The testimonies would have carried some little weight if the purpose of the petition was to change entries made on the collation forms or summary sheets but that is not the case.

“Their testimonies were therefore of no relevance to the said issues set out for determination and so we find them unworthy for consideration whatsoever.

“In fact, regarding the testimonies of PW2 and PW3 , if their evidence is to be believed then they had to blame themselves for abandoning their post at the national collation centre at the time the verification and certification of the results were ongoing and PW3 had then verified and certified the regional collation results out of the 16.”

The Petitioner in the 2020 election petition, John Dramani Mahama has made an appearance at the premises of the Supreme Court this morning.

The 7-member panel presiding over the 2020 election petition is expected to deliver judgement today in the case which lasted about one month.

Mr Mahama is challenging the declaration of President Akufo-Addo as having won the 2020 election.

According to Mr Mahama, no candidate obtained more than 50%.

He is therefore praying the court for a re-run of the election between himself and President Akufo-Addo.

The Apex Court will put the matter to rest today by delivering its judgement.
