John Mahama Files Motion To Amend ‘mistake’ In Election Petition

Election Petition

Former President John Dramani Mahama has documented a movement at the Supreme Court to permit him to address a “botch” in the election petition he recorded testing the legitimacy of the statement of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the victor of the 2020 presidential election.

The movement for change is looking for the authorization of the zenith court to address an error in alleviation (f) of the political decision request.

In the political race appeal, documented on December 30, 2020, the main respondent (first) was the Electoral Commission (EC), with the subsequent respondent (second) being President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

However, relief (f) wants the court to order a rerun between Mr. Mahama and the first respondent, which, as stated in the petition, turned out to be the EC.

Relief (f) is seeking “an order of mandatory injunction directing the first respondent to proceed to conduct a second election with petitioner and first respondent as the candidates as required under Articles 63(4) and (5) of the 1992 Constitution.”

It is this mistake that the Former President wants to correct.

The Supreme Court is expected to hear the motion for amendment on Thursday, January 14.
