The key opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) will send a petition to the Supreme Court on Wednesday to contest the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
A member of the NDC legal staff, Rockson-Nelson Este Kwami Dafeamekpor, who is also a member of Parliament for South Danyi, revealed in the Joy FM News file on Saturday 26 December.
He said, “Whatever the result declaration that has been made must be in accordance with CI 127, it is as simple as that.”
When asked who has the right to call the polls null and void, he said, “It would take a court of law to do so. So everyone has to complain that the legislation has not been met with, and that’s what the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is doing. And we’re going to go to court, we’ve made it clear.
“Certainly, by Wednesday, all these matters will be brought before the judge. We’re still suing the President.”
Another NDC lawyer told TV3’s Dela Mishel on Mid-Day Live on Saturday 26 December that the EC made mistakes on its forms and that if those errors were reversed, President Akufo-Addo would not be able to receive 50+1 votes.
Former President John Dramani Mahama declined to recognize defeat at the polls on 7 December.
The Presidential Nominee of the NDC alleged that the elections had been skewed by the Electoral Commission in favor of the incumbent President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, as a result of his failure to recognize the outcome.
