Supreme Court judgement on election petition 'unanimous'

Chief Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah made the announcement in open court
The Supreme Court has yet again taken a “unanimous” decision on the election petition filed by John Dramani Mahama.

This was announced by the president of the Court, Kwasi Anin Yeboah, prior to reading the judgement on Thursday, March 4.

“My Lords, the judgement of the court is unanimous and same will be read by the President of the [Supreme] Court.”

It comes after most of the rulings of the justices as regards applications of the petitioner during hearing were unanimous.

Even reviews of some of those rulings filed by the petitioner – which demanded additional justices to sit on them – also resulted in unanimous decisions.

Justice Anin Yeboah, who is also Ghana’s Chief Justice, dismissed the petition, indicating that the petitioner admitted that he did not challenge the results of the elections though praying for a rerun of the presidential polls.

“The petitioner has not produced any evidence to rebut the presumptions created by the publication of CI 135,” Chief Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah said at the end of a two-hour-long reading of the judgement.

“We have therefore no reason to order a rerun. We accordingly dismiss the petition.”
