Pretrial of Election 2020 Presidential Petition underway


  19 Janvier      23        Société (29553),

   

Accra, Jan. 19, GNA – Mr Tsatsu Tsikata, counsel for the petitioner in the 2020 Election Petition case, has filed an interlocutory application raising over 12 questions for the Electoral Commission (EC) to answer.
Some of the questions border on the mode of transmission of election results to the EC headquarters, whether or not the National Communications Authority played a role in the transmission of election results to the EC headquarters, and when the EC Chairperson realised that there were errors in the  Presidential Election.
Mr Tsikata contended that the answers to these questions would help narrow down the issues set out for trial.
However, Mr Justine Amenuvor, counsel for the EC, has opposed to the grant of leave for the motion for interlocutory application.
According to the counsel for the EC, all the answers being sought by the Petitioner had been captured under law and the EC duly followed the law in the transmission of the Presidential Election results.
He informed the court that the transmission of election results was done through fax and that the Petitioner’s  agents signed 13 of the 16 forms from the various regional collation centres, while the agents of the then President-elect also signed 14 of the forms.
According to counsel for the EC, the questions of the Petitioner sought to introduce new facts through the back door.
He said the answers being sought by the Petitioner were well known in his domain.
The seven-member panel, presided over by the Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin Yeboah, is expected to rule on whether or not to grant the leave for the interlocutory application moved by Mr Tsikata, after a recess.
