Election Petition: Mahama picks Kpessa-Whyte and Asiedu Nketiah to testify for him

A senior lecturer at the University of Ghana and a main individual from the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Michael Kpessa-Whyte and the party’s overall secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, are the two observers testifying for John Mahama in the 2020 election appeal.

Complying with the Supreme Court’s time constraint to record his observer statement today, 27 January 2021, Mahama restricted his observers to two rather than the five his legal advisors had at first shown while documenting the appeal.

Mahama’s lawyer neglected to follow the pinnacle court’s requests to record the assertions by 21 January and rather documented an application trying to remain procedures at the Supreme Court until his application for survey of the Supreme Court’s choice on a prior application for interrogatories has been heard.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday said it will be compelled to apply the guidelines including tossing out the 2020 election appeal by previous President John Mahama on the off chance that he neglects to agree.

The main respondent, the Electoral Commission, recorded one observer explanation on the side of its case, who is Jean Mensa. The subsequent respondent, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, by a force of lawyer dated 15 January 2021 naming Peter Mac Manu to testify for his benefit, has likewise recorded one observer articulation.

The case will be reviewed Thursday 28 January 2021.

Mr. Mahama and the NDC tested the 2020 official election saying it was defective.

He keeps up that neither he nor President Akufo-Addo achieved a reasonable larger part during the surveys on account of the exclusion of the Techiman South voting public from the affirmation of results.

As per the EC, President Akufo-Addo collected 51.59 percent of the votes while Mr. Mahama got 47.37 percent.

Mr. Mahama is currently requesting that the Supreme Court request a re-run of the official election for him and the officeholder.
