Dr Nduom and 12 other presidential aspirants were disqualified from contesting in the December elections over alleged illegalities on their nomination forms.

Dr Nduom, according to the EC, was disqualified because “the number of subscribers to his forms did not meet the requirements of Regulation 7 (2) (b) of CI 94.

But the judge upon hearing the sides ruled that the EC can only make a decision after the correction on whether they had fulfilled all the requirements to be put on the ballot paper.
