A spokesperson and member of the legal team for the petitioner, Marietta Brew Appiah Oppong, has dispelled claims that the petitioner is relying on witnesses of the respondents to make his case, hence the pressure on EC Chair, Jean Mensah to be cross-examined.
This comes after the Supreme Court today dismissed the petition by Mahama to have Jean Mensa and Mac Manu cross-examined despite various arguments by Tsatsu Tsikata, lead counsel for the petitioner.
“We have the strength of our case but as we have stated over and over again, the EC is accountable to us. She has to account as to how those errors arrived. When did she discover those errors? What was the process of correcting those errors?” Marietta Brew told the media after proceedings today.
She added that: “We’ve seen for some regions there are different summary sheets, different collation sheets. How did that come about? Who’s going to answer these? Apart from that remember that the petitioner is not the returning officer. The petitioner does not declare results. It is the chairperson that declares presidential results in an election.”
