In other news on YEN.com.gh, Justice Gertrude Torkornoo, a member of the seven-member panel that sat on the 2020 election petition, said the Supreme Court expected the petitioner to provide pink sheets supporting his allegations of electoral irregularities and lack of a clear winner in the presidential poll.
Former President John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) petitioned the apex court after rejecting the outcome of the presidential polls.
He argued in his petition that the December 9 declaration by the chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa, that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo won the presidential election was flawed.
According to him, there was no winner in the election, and that the Supreme Court should set aside the EC chairperson’s declaration and order for a rerun between him and the president.
The Apex Court, however, dismissed the petition, stating that it cannot order a rerun of the 2020 presidential polls.
The panel held that the former president failed to adduce “cogent evidence” to back his claims that there was no winner in the December 7, 2020, presidential elections.
