Election Petition: Akuffo-Addo, Prempeh law firm to represent President Akufo-Addo in 2020 election petition

The Akufo-Addo, Prempeh & Co law firm led by Akoto Ampaw has entered a notice of appearance to represent President Akufo-Addo in the election petition filed by former President John Mahama at the Supreme Court.

In a statement after filing the petition, the party said:

“The Petition was filed pursuant to the party‘s audit of the 2020 Presidential results and extensive consultations with the National Executive Committee and Council of Elders of the party.
“The Petition details serious violations of the 1992 Constitution by the Electoral Commission and its Chairperson and Returning Officer for the Presidential Election, Mrs. Jean Adukwei Mensa in the conduct of their constitutional and legal responsibilities. It seeks among others, a declaration from the Supreme Court to the effect that, the purported declaration of the results of the 2020 Presidential Election on the 9th day of December 2020 is unconstitutional, null and void and of no effect whatsoever”.

The opposition NDC on December 30, 2020, filed a petition at the Supreme Court challenging the outcome of the presidential elections.
