A representative of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) team of lawyers, Baba Jamal, disclosed how in the 2012/13 trial court, the Supreme Court (SC) issued an interlocutory appeal to Nana Akufo-Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the then-presidential nominee of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who lost the presidency in 2012.
Baba Jamal who is the spokesperson of the Mahama lead team of lawyers stated saying;
In 2013, the court granted to Nana Addo the opportunity for interrogatories. The court explained that once it can help with the quickening of the case, they will allow it. At that time the justices were nine. This time the justices are seven but they still disagreed with us
So what was accepted in 2013, is now being quashed today. With the new law, the court wants to expedite the process, and we believe that this could have fastened the process
Baba Jamal was speaking during an interview with Sefa Danquah on the ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ show monitored by Mynewsghana.net stated that he expected the court to have agreed to their plea which would have hurried the trail.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court rejected the request for questioning by the team captain of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, requesting the Electoral Commission to address some legal issues in order to explain factual issues and to help know ahead of time what evidence will indeed be raised in the 2020 election petition case.
