Videos: Supreme Court dismisses Mahama motion to inspect EC’s documents

The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed former President John Dramani Mahama’s motion seeking to inspect some documents of the Electoral Commission (EC) in the 2020 election petition hearing.

The documents include 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.

The others are the originals of the regional presidential election results summary sheets (form 12) for all regions and the original declaration of the presidential results form (form 13) and the records of the alleged update to the purported declaration of presidential election results on 9 December 2020, of the results of four constituencies in the Greater Accra Region.

Giving its ruling on the motion, the president of the seven-member panel, Chief Justice Anin Yeboah, in referring to the Evidence Act said: “No issue has been raised against the authenticity of the duplicates in possession of the applicants… from the above reasons the application is dismissed.”
