Lawyers for the Petitioner in the ongoing Election Petition at the Supreme Court led by Mr Tsatsu Tsikata are expected to move a motion seeking the leave of the court to reopen former President John Mahama’s case.

The Petitioner who had closed his case on the 8th of this month filed the motion after the Apex Court had a request to compel the EC Chairperson to give evidence and be cross-examined was refused.

The former President’s legal team, led by Mr Tsatsu Tsikata, will seek to convince the court that reopening the petitioner’s case to pave the way for the EC Chairperson to be subpoenaed would be in the “interest of justice and fairness”.

Mr Mahama filed the application for leave (permission) to reopen his case last Thursday, barely an hour after the court had overruled an objection by Mr Tsikata to the decision by the two respondents (the EC and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo) not to call any witnesses to adduce evidence.
