General News of Wednesday, 30 January 2013
Kwamena Duncan, a member of the Communication Team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has asked the Supreme Court to be ‘careful’ of the way they are prolonging the Election petition put forward by the NPP.
He does not understand why the Supreme Court keeps adjourning the case, which to him, is ‘unwarranted’.
The Supreme Court of Ghana on Tuesday resumed hearing of the Election petition of the NPP. After proceedings the Supreme Court adjourned to Thursday, 31st January, 2013, the case in which lawyers of the President and the Electoral Commission (EC) are requesting Nana Akufo-Addo, Dr Bawumia and Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey, who are challenging the 2012 election results, to furnish them with 'further and better particulars' on their petition.
The Supreme Court however ruled that the NDC should file a motion for further particulars for the party to be able to raise objections in the election fraud case and adjourned hearing to Thursday, 31st January 2013.
Speaking to Tweneboa Kodua (TK) on Peace FM’s morning show ‘Kokrokoo’ Kwamena Duncan said: “The Supreme Court must be careful. They should not allow processes which will let the rational of the main petition be lost. The issue should not be prolonged unduly. If care is not taken, they will go back and forth and the issue will never be resolved."
