Four-time presidential candidate Dr Edward Mahama demands a reversal of his disqualification

Lawyers of the flagbearer of the People’s National Convention (PNC) Atuguba and Associates have written to the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) to rescind its decision to disqualify Dr Edward Nasigre Mahama from the December 7 elections, within 48 hours lest they head to court.

Dr Mahama is among 12 presidential candidates disqualified by the Commission for irregularities with their nomination forms.

According to the Chair of the Commission, Charlotte Osei, who made the disqualification announcement, Dr Mahama had many of his subscribers not properly signing his forms.

Two of his subscribers, Abaako Issifu and Abudu Ayuba, for instance, were cited by Mrs Osei to have signed for another presidential candidate.

But in the letter written to the EC, the PNC says the reasons were not tenable per the independent investigations conducted by the party.

Lead counsel Dr Raymond Atuguba says the EC must rescind its decision or face a legal tussle.

If it goes ahead to sue the Commission, the number of suits against the Commission over the disqualifications will come to four.

Flagbearers of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), National Democratic Party (NDP) and the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP) have sued the Commission and, in some cases, the Attorney General.
