The supreme court will today, November 4, hear the appeal of the Electoral Commission (EC), over the overturning of Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom's disqualification by the high court.
According to the electoral commission, the high court needs to quash its earlier decision and seek clarity on the relevant reasons why it, the EC, disqualified the PPP.
The EC is expected to argue that some form of criminality was sighted on Dr Nduom’s nomination forms in the form of falsified signatures and hence its decision to reject his bid to contest the presidential elections was justified.
This legal tussle will see the supreme court hear oral arguments from the two lawyers of the EC and the PP after which a date will be set for the ruling.
Meanwhile, a high court will also be determining whether the flagbearer of the All People’s Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga, should be disqualified or not.
