Documents: Mahama wants election petition proceedings stayed


    John Dramani Mahama has filed an application for stay of proceedings at the Supreme Court about the ongoing Election Petition Hearing.

    The petitioner wants the Supreme Court to temporarily halt the hearing of the ‘main’ petition until such a time that the review application and the application to inspect documents served on the 1st respondent have been heard and ruling given by the Court.

    The Former President is currently in court challenging the outcome of January 7, 2020, Presidential Elections results as declared by the Electoral Commission.

    He contends that neither him nor President Akufo-Addo, who was declared the winner in that elections, had enough votes to be announced the winner as stipulated by the constitution.

    The President’s predecessor wants an annulment of that verdict and in its place, another round of election organised between himself and president.
