Election Petition: Supreme Court to rule tomorrow

The Supreme Court will on Tuesday rule as to whether or not the petitioners challenging the results of the December 2012 election should furnish President John Mahama and the Electoral Commission with ‘better and further’ particulars regarding their petition.

The court will decide whether or not to direct the EC to answer a number of questions raised by the petitioners, Nana Akufo-Addo, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia and the Chairman of the NPP, Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey.

President Mahama and the EC are praying the court to order for the petitioners to provide the names and codes of the 4,709 polling stations, constituencies and regions where alleged electoral irregularities took place.

The petitioners have opposed the request of the first and second respondent and have also filed a motion for leave to serve the EC with a number of interrogatories.

They are seeking for the EC to provide them with details of the names and addresses of persons who were registered overseas and the mode and manner those persons were registered.
