Electoral Commission (EC) petitions Supreme Court to overturn Friday's High Court ruling in Progressive People Party (PPP) flag-bearer's Favor.
On Monday, October 31st, The Electoral Commission sought the auspices of the Supreme Court in an attempt to decisively end the matter of the PPP's presidential cadidate's prior disqualification by the commission.
In a statement issued to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), the Electoral Commission stated, "The commission is of the firm conviction, backed by law, that candidates seeking the highest office of the land must take full responsibility for ensuring that their nomination forms meet the standard in form, and substance required by law."
The statement goes on to say that, "The commission is further of the view that falsified signatures on nomination forms constitute a matter for criminal investigation, and are not mere anomalies or clerical errors which should be pointed out to candidates for corrections to be affected."
Thus, according to the aforementioned statement, the Electoral Commission has sought out the supervisory jurisdiction of the Supreme Court in order to bring the controversy to a decisive end.
