NDC Files Election Petition At Supreme Court Today

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is expected to file a petition against the 2020 presidential results at the Supreme Court today, Wednesday, December 30.

A member of the NDC legal team hinted on Saturday in a media Interview that the party has taken the decision to contest the election results in court by December 30, 2020.

On Tuesday, the party released a statement signed by its General Secretary, Johnson Asideu-Nketiah to confirm the NDC Executive Committee has taken the decision to officially challenge the election results at the law court.

The NDC have alleged that the election was flawed, citing a number of irregularities as the basis for rejecting the results.


Kasatintin.com gathers that NDC legal team led by Tsatsu Tsikata, will push the Chairperson of the Commission, Jean Mensa to justify the numbers and percentages used to determine the winner of the December 7 presidential polls.

This move, according to sources is not to overturn the presidential results as declared by the EC but to establish the actual votes obtained by Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and John Dramani Mahama of the NDC.


Exclusive information Kasatintin.com has sighted say some NDC lawyers believe that per the numbers Jean Mensa declared, neither candidate Akufo-Addo or Mahama secured the required 50+1 votes hence the election should have ended in a runoff– in the worst-case scenario.

NDC presidential candidate John Dramani Mahama is expected to address a press conference after filing of petition.
