Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Dramani Mahama has filed a motion at the Supreme Court to correct some errors in his election petition.
Mr. Mahama said in the motion that “in indorsing on the Writ, the addresses of the parties to be served, an error was made in the description and positioning of the parties in Paragraph 6, which l seek leave to correct”.
It further said “in the relief numbered (f) on the Writ which was repeated in paragraph 35(f) of the Petition, there is typographical error in the third and fourth lines, which refers to “1st Respondent” instead of “2nd Respondent”, which I also seek leave to correct”.
“Counsel has advised me that the parties to the Petition have otherwise properly been indorsed on Writ and correctly described in the Petition.
“In the Appearances which Respondents have caused to be filed on their respective behalves, they acknowledge their correct and proper designations and descriptions. They would therefore not be prejudiced in any manner if the amendment is granted.
“A copy each of the proposed Amended Writ and Petition are attached and marked compositely as Exhibit “AMENDMENT 1. I seek the amendment in good faith”.
