The Electoral Commissions has filed a 22-point legal objection as per the orders of the Supreme Court to former President John Mahama’s election petition.

The legal objections filed by the EC on Friday, January 22, 2021, said among other things that, the petition has not “raised any reasonable cause of action.”

As of the time of filing this report, the 2nd Respondent Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is yet to file his witness statements and exhibits as per the orders.
Pending the determination of that review set to be heard on Jan 28, coupled with the court’s decision to commence hearing of the petition on January 26, the petitioner has filed a stay of proceedings to the petition.

According to the petitioner, commencing the hearing of the petition before hearing his review motion will constitute a “grave miscarriage of justice.”
