EC's appeal likely to affect election calendar - Lecturer

A law lecturer at the University of Ghana has expressed worry over the Electoral Commission's decision to appeal a lower court’s ruling ordering the reinstatement of Progressive People’s Party (PPP) flagbearer, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom.

Dr Poku Adusei said the appeal suit filed at the Supreme Court Monday could affect the election calendar considering there is barely 37 days to the presidential and parliamentary elections.

“I am worried the Electoral Commission is pursuing this line because by the time the matter is resolved in the case of Nduom in the Supreme Court we would have lost at least about 10 days,” he said.
