The Supreme Court has dismissed the election petition brought before it by John Dramani Mahama, the 2020 Presidential Candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
This according to the apex court is because the case before it has no merit.
“The petitioner did not demonstrate in any way how the errors [committed by the EC] affected the declaration of the election…We have therefore no reason to order a re-run [of the polls]. We accordingly dismiss the petition,” – Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah.
Former President John Mahama who lost the 2016 elections and re-contested the 2020 polls on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), took the Electoral Commission to court, challenging the validity of results and the declaration of President Akufo-Addo as the winner.
