The Supreme Court will today rule on an application by the 2020 Presidential Candidate of the NDC, John Mahama seeking to be granted permission to inspect some documents of the Electoral Commission.

The application, filed by his counsel Tony Lithur, follows an earlier motion filed on January 20.

In that document, Mr Mahama through his lawyers is asking that six documents including constituency presidential election results summary sheets are made available to his team.

The former President also wanted to be allowed to make copies of the said document.

But the EC did not comply with the request put forward by the petitioner, hence the new application asking that the court compels the EC to do so.

Meanwhile, oral arguments are to take place today.

The new application, is demanding the originals of the constituency presidential election result collation forms (form 9) for all constituencies, the originals of all constituency presidential election results summary sheet (form 10), and the originals of the regional presidential election collation forms (form 11) for all regions.

Again, the team is asking for the originals of the regional presidential election results summary sheets (form 12) for all regions and the original of the declaration of the presidential results form (form 13).

Finally, the team wants the records of the alleged update to the purported declaration of presidential election results on 9th December 2020, of the results of four constituencies in the Greater Accra Region.

At the close of proceedings yesterday, Mr. Tsikata notified the court of the new application.

The court directed that the EC and President Akufo-Addo’s team file a response to the request by the close of yesterday.
