A motion was submitted by the legal team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Presidential Nominee, John Dramani Mahama, attempting to amend certain flaws in his petition opposing the result of the 2020 general election.
The motion claims that in the classification and placement of the parties to be served in the brief, a mistake was made.
It also pointed out that one of the reliefs in the writing contained a typographical mistake.
‘There is a typographical mistake in the third and fourth lines in the relief numbered (f) on the written declaration replicated in paragraph 35(f) of the petition, which applies to 1st Respondent instead of 2nd Respondent,’ said the motion,’
Thus, the resolution demands the reversal of the status and the designation of the parties involved and the correction of typographical errors.
On Wednesday, 30 December 2020, John Dramani Mahama filed a suit in the Supreme Court opposing the results of the 2020 elections.
In his petition to the Supreme Court, Mr. Mahama stated that the results announced by the Electoral Commission in favor of the New Patriotic Party’s President Akufo-Addo were “made arbitrarily, capriciously, and with prejudice.”
The NPP replied to the petition subsequently, describing it as error-ridden and void.
‘It is very interesting that John Dramani Mahama, the flag bearer of the NDC and the complainant, who based his petition on alleged errors committed by the Electoral Commission, has himself lodged an error-filled petition, including a plea for a run-off between himself and the Electoral Commission,’ the party said in a statement.
