The Communications Director for the National Democratic Congress, Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi has revealed the reason his party did not present their correlated results to the Supreme Court.
According to Sammy Gyamfi, the case present at the apex court did not require the petitioner to provide his correlated results to the court.
The NDC led by John Dramani Mahama as its flag bearer is in court to seek a re-run of the 2020 presidential elections on the basis that the winner of the 2020 polls President Nana Akuffo Addo did not win the elections with the 50 plus 1 requirement.
John Mahama is also accusing the EC chairperson, Madam Jean Mensah of rigging the 2020 elections in favour of the NPP.
When Asiedu Nketia took his stand as the first witness on Monday, he failed to provide correlated results from the NDC which suggests that they won the elections.
Taking to his facebook page to defend the action of Mr Asiedu Nketia, Sammy Gyamfi insisted that President Nana Akuffo Addo in 2012 failed to provide correlated results to the apex court.
He defended that there wasn’t any clear requirement to suggest that they had to file their results to the court. He said;
For the records, candidate Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia did not present their own collated figures or results to the Supreme Court in the 2012/2013 election petition.
I dare anybody who disputes this fact to point me to any paragraph in the 2012 election Petition where the petitioners presented their own collated figures to the Supreme Court to show that they won the 2012 presidential election.
In that case, the petitioners presented the EC’s own declared figures to the court and asked the court to annul about 4 million votes on grounds that those votes had been affected by alleged legal infractions and irregularities.
The petitioners then proceeded to deduct those votes from the results/figures declared by the EC and sought a declaration from the court that candidate Akufo-Addo won the 2012 Presidential election on the basis of the resultant outcome, i.e if those votes were actually annulled.
The Petitioners did not present their own collated figures to the Supreme Court to show that they won that election,”
