The chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Adukwei Mensa has called on the Supreme Court not to give the chance to the National Democratic Congress flagbearer John Dramani Mahama to revisit the election petition case.
Mahama was denied a request by the Supreme Court to allow Jean Mensa to be cross examined as a witness of the ongoing case.
But Mahama together with Tsatsu Tsikata who is the leader of the NDC legal counsel has filed a new document with the interest of asking the Court on Monday to allow the reopening of the case. This could help them get the opportunity to go ahead to cross examine the EC boss.
In contrary with the request of the NDC which is yet to be heard, Jean Mensa on behalf of the Electoral Commission has filed an affidavit to counter this request.
Mrs Mensa argued that at no point has she ever indicated a desire to testify in the ongoing hearing.
“At no time have I informed the petitioner or his lawyers of my desire to testify in this case”, the affidavit states.
She said should the court even grant the request for the case to be reopened, it should not order her to testify since such a decision will defeat its earlier ruling that she cannot be compelled to testify.
