Ghana’s Supreme Court will today hear legal arguments from parties involved in the 2020 Election Petition on whether the chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) Jean Mensa will mount the witness box to testify or not.
On Monday, the Petitioner John Dramani Mahama closed his case after calling three witnesses. In a surprising twist however, lawyers for the EC said they intend not to call any more witnesses.
Lawyers for the second respondent Nana Akufo-Addo also indicated that they would not be calling any witness despite previously filing witness statements.
The Justices of the Apex court therefore adjourned sittings to this morning to decide on the way forward.
