A private legitimate professional, Nii Kpakpo Samoa Addo has reproved applicant and previous president John Dramani Mahama to drop his argument against December 2020 official races in the event that he neglects to get the Electoral Commission (EC) Chairperson to mount the testimony box.
High Court Judges hearing the December political race request on Thursday, February 11, 2021, in a consistent choice, decided that the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa can’t be compelled to affirm for the situation.
“The law is, hence, settled that a gathering won’t be constrained to enter the observer confine and affirm backing of their own case,” the court showed.
I additionally overruled a complaint by lead Counsel the solicitor, Mr Tsatsu Tsikata, testing the choice by the respondents (the EC and President Akufo-Addo) not to call any observer.
The legal advisors have noticed that they will return the case and summon the EC Chair to affirm.
Yet, responding to the advancement on Citi TV’s ‘The Big Issue’ on Saturday, February 14, Nii Kpakpo Samoa Addo noticed that it will be an unproductive endeavor for previous President John Mahama to keep on pursueing the case.
“In the event that he applies to resume his case and therefore the court actually rejects for him to offer the summon then i feel there’ll no reason for seeking after this case any further,” Mr. Addo set.
“I are going to be amazed if the solicitor really sees this case as far as possible,” he promoted.
Mr Addo featured same contentions introduced by the Petitioners counsel, keeping up that there was the requirement for Madam Jean Mensa to mount the testimony box to be responsible for the situation.
He asserted that the EC Chair’s posing could demonstrate troublesome and influence future races in the country.
“The one against whom the charge was made is that the sole returning official during this political race. She is the one in particular who can reply to the particular claims that have been made against her.
“On the off chance that the Electoral Commissioner isn’t responsible in a court cycle in regard of how she acted… at that point fundamentally the thing you are saying that in a political race later on, all issues are gotten comfortable the surveying stations,” he clarified
