The suit has Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom as the exparte applicant, with Madam Charlotte Osei the EC Chairperson as the 1st Respondent, and the Electoral Commission as the 2nd Respondent.
In plain terms, the Dr. Ndoum is also seeking an opportunity to amend the mistakes opportunity to amend and alter the one anomaly found in his nomination papers as well as accept his nomination papers to enable him contest as a Presidential Candidate for the 7th December 2016 elections.
Dr. Nduom, together with 12 other presidential candidates, was disqualified by the EC from contesting in the general elections this year for failing to fill their forms correctly.
Prior to this court action, Dr. Nduom had met with the EC boss to get her to rescind her decision, but the meeting ended with no hope for the renowned entrepreneur who was making a third and last attempt at the presidency.
