The 1st Respondent in the 2020 Election Petition, the Electoral Commission has filed an affidavit in opposition to attempts by the Petitioner, John Dramani Mahama to reopen his case.
Lawyers for the 2020 Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) filed the application in order to serve a subpoena on the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Adukwei Mensa to testify.
Despite closing his case under the misguided belief that the EC boss will testify, the reopening of the case became an option after the Supreme Court ruled that it could not compel a Party to enter the Witness Box and testify in support of his or her case last week.
The apex court’s ruling was on the decision by the 1st and Second Respondents to close their case without calling any witnesses.
