Supreme Court unanimously dismisses John Mahama’s election petition
The Supreme Court has today dismissed the election petition brought before it by the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama.
In a judgement read by the Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah on Thursday, March 4, 2021.“The petitioner did not demonstrate in any way how the errors affected the declaration of the election…We have therefore no reason to order a re-run [of the election]. We accordingly dismiss the petition,”
John Mahama was challenging the results of the polls insisting that none of the nine presidential candidates obtained the mandatory 50%+1 vote constitutional threshold to be declared the winner of the polls.
