The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) will be filing a petition to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential election at the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
A member of the legal team of the NDC, Rockson-Nelson Este Kwami Dafeamekpor who is also Member of Parliament for South Danyi revealed on Joy FM’s News file Saturday December 26.
He said “Whatever result declaration that have been made must be in accordance with the CI 127, it is as simple as that.”
When asked who has the power to declare the elections null and void, he answered “it will take a court of law to do that. So somebody has to complain that the law has not been complied with and that is what the NDC is doing. So we will go to court, we have made that clear.
“Certainly by Wednesday all these matters will be placed before the court. We are suing the presidential as well.”
Another lawyer within the NDC told TV3’s Dela Mishel on the Mid Day Live Saturday December 26 that the EC made errors on its forms and when those errors are corrected, President Akufo-Addo would not be able to secure the 50+1 votes.
Former President John Dramani Mahama refused to accept defeat after the December 7 polls.
The Presidential Candidate of the NDC claimed that the results were manipulated by the Electoral Commission in favour of the incumbent President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo hence his inability to accept the outcome.
