Election petition: Supreme Court delivers judgment today

28

The Supreme Court will today, Thursday, 3 March 2021, deliver its judgment on the December 2020 presidential election.

The petitioner, who is the 2020 p, presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Mahama dragged the Electoral Commission and President Akufo-Addo to court over the election results.

Mr Mahama is arguing that neither he nor President Akufo-Addo crossed the threshold of more than 50 per cent to be declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election.

He, therefore, does not understand why the Electoral Commission (EC) declared Nana Akufo-Addo the winner and the President-elect and has, subsequently, been sworn in.

Mr Mahama is praying the Supreme Court to order a rerun of the election between himself and Nana Akufo-Addo.

The first respondent which is the EC insists the second respondent, Nana Akufo-Addo crossed the constitutional threshold and was rightfully declared the winner.
