Second witness for the Petitioner in the 2020 Presidential Election Petition, Dr. Michael Kpessa-Whyte, will mount the witness box today at the ongoing Election Petition Hearing.

Dr. Kpessa-Whyte was one of two representatives of the Petitioner stationed at the National Collation Centre of the Electoral Commission during the Presidential Election held on December 7 2020. In his witness statement, he said as one of the Petitioner’s representatives in the EC’s “Strong room” he noticed many material irregularities during the entire process of the December 7, 2020, Presidential Election.

Dr. Kpessa-Whyte said consequently, he and his colleague representative in the “strong room”, Robert Joseph Mettle-Nunoo, brought the many material irregularities to the immediate attention of Petitioner and the NDC, the political party on whose ticket the Petitioner contested as candidate for the office of President.

Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, also a witness for the Petitioner, after presenting his witness statement and has since been cross-examined by the Respondents’ lawyers and discharged by the court. The Petition is also seeking a mandatory injunction, directing the First Respondent, the Electoral Commission to proceed to conduct a second election between the petitioner and the 2nd respondent as the candidates, as required under Articles 63 (4) and (5) of the 1992 constitutions.
