The Criminal Division of the Accra High Court presided over by Justice El-Freda Denkyi has dismissed an application filed by Marricke Kofi Gane to quash his disqualification from the December 2020 election as an Independent Presidential candidate.

The court in its judgement said the applicant has no equitable or legal rights that the court must protect by way of granting his application.

The court argued that last month when the applicant filed his case, it was 10 days after his disqualification and 14 days to election when the case came up for hearing on 23rd of this month.

Per the court, granting the application will breach a constitutional mandate and the public would be denied their rights to choose their leader.

Dismissing the application, the court said the applicant does not deserve any of the reliefs he sought,adding that the EC has already made all provisions ahead of the elections.
