Tomorrow, January 26, 2021, the Supreme Court will sit to begin hearing of the petition brought to it by John Mahama over the declaration of results of the 2020 elections.
According to the former president, John Mahama, the results as announced did not reflect the elections and is thus calling for a rerun of the elections between himself and the 2nd Respondent.
Last week, the Supreme Court asked the counsel for the Petitioner to file their witness statements. However, they failed to do so and rather filed a motion to have their review on the use of interrogatories heard before they could file their statements.
Counsel for the petitioner, Tsatsu Tsikata also bemoaned that the day given to file the statements was too short.
Today, Monday, January 25, 2021, the Petitioner has once again filed a new motion. This time the petitioner wants to;
A. File an additional ground of review.
B replace a paragraph in his original statement of case.
C. file a supplement to the statement of case.
Many have argued that the petitioner is rather delaying the case by filing so many motions and failing to respond to what it is rather required to do. The Supreme Court will sit tomorrow to determine what happens next. Will the new motion be granted?
