The High Court has ordered the Electoral Commission to file its responses to a suit challenging the disqualification of an independent Presidential aspirant, Marricke Kofi Gane, by Tuesday November 24, 2020.

Mr. Gane, who is one of the five disqualified presidential aspirants, sued to challenge the EC’s decision to disqualify him.

The EC’s technical team found that a number of the signatures endorsing his form had a similar pattern.

The EC subsequently referred the case to the Criminal Investigations Department of the Police Service for further investigations and possible prosecution of which according to the commission, police came to the conclusion that a number of the signatures endorsing his forms were fake.

The police hierarchy at a media briefing early last month acknowledged the referral and said investigations were still ongoing.

Mr. Gane and the lawyers of the EC have both been ordered to reappear at the Criminal Court 2 Division of the High Court.
