The Supreme Court has dismissed an Application to serve interrogatories on the Electoral Commission filed by former President John Dramani Mahama who is the Petitioner in the ongoing election petition.
In the application for interrogatories, John Mahama was seeking the Court to allow him ask the EC certain questions ahead of the hearing of the substantive matter.
Some of the questions included the manner in which the results of the 2020 presidential polls were transmitted and the involvement of the National Communications Authority (NCA) in the transmission of the presidential results.
But both the lawyers for the Electoral Commission (EC) and President Nana Akufo-Addo opposed to the Application.
They argued that John Mahama and his legal team were using the “back door” to seek further information from the EC that were not captured in their petition.
The Court subsequently dismissed the Application.
The case however continues today for pre-trial.
