Accra, Jan 10, GNA – The case involving the National Democratic Congress (NDC) suit seeking to be joined to the petition filed by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) against the results of the December 7 and 8 presidential elections was Thursday adjourned sine die.
The adjournment followed an objection raised by the NPP against the composition of the nine-member Supreme Court panel that was to sit on the case.
The NDC had applied to the court to be joined in the suit filed against the Electoral Commission (EC) and President John Dramani Mahama, over Election 2012 Presidential results as declared by Dr Kwadwo Afari-Gyan, the EC Chairman.
The NPP is alleging fraud in the December polls in which the EC declared President John Dramani Mahama the winner.
The party has consequently filed a petition at the Supreme Court, seeking to overturn the results declared by Dr. Afari Gyan.
The presidential candidate of the NPP, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, his running-mate, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and NPP Chairman, Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey who brought the petition and cited Dr. Afari Gyan and President Mahama as the respondents.
Mr Justice William Anaam Atuguba led the panel.
