The emerging report we have convened has it that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has revealed that they already had their lawyers fully prepared and ready to face the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in court.
This is to present their cases for the court to decide who won the December elections which took place a couple of weeks ago.
Our earlier report indicates that the NDC has stated that it will present a petition to the highest court of the land which is the Supreme Court as to enable them to decide on who would be adjourned as the rightful winner of the election for peace to ruin in the country.
Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor a member of the legal team of the largest opposition party in a statement revealed that they are ready for anything that would come their way so far as the election is concerned.
We’ll go to court. We’ve made that clear. Certainly, by Wednesday, all these matters would be placed before the court
We’re saying Electoral Commission should comply with the law. If you comply with the law and we emerge victorious that is fine. But you do not comply with the law and announce another candidate as the victor.
Director of elections for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in an interview with Asaase Radio monitored stated that they are also ready for the NDC.
The checks by the New Patriotic Party, the monitoring, the compilation of results from all the pink sheets put Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the candidate who secured more than 51% (50%+1) of the votes cast. Reports from foreign and local observers indicated that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo genuinely won the elections. The EC has announced the results, it has been gazetted and we think that this election has been won by His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.”
