The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) is considering dragging the Electoral Commission (EC) to court today, Tuesday, 8 November over 105 new errors, which the election management body says it has detected on the forms of flag bearer Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom.
Lawyer for the PPP, Nii Ayikoi Otoo, told Class FM’s Inside Politics host Moro Awudu on Monday, November 7, that his client was considering heading to court again over the new development.
This follows an earlier Supreme Court ruling on the struggle between Dr Nduom and the EC, over the former’s disqualification from the 2016 presidential race.
A 7-member Supreme Court panel presided over by Justice Sophia Adinyira, upheld a High Court ruling ordering the EC to allow Dr Nduom, to get back into the presidential race.
The apex court on Monday, 7 November also ordered the EC to extend the nomination period for flag bearers to Tuesday, 8 November. It also directed the EC to give all parties a fair hearing to make the necessary corrections on their nomination forms.
It further ordered all High Courts to suspend any case before them in connection with the disqualification of other flag bearers.
