The Supreme Court hearing the Election petition case has struck out the motion by the petitioners to stay proceedings.
In its ruling on Thursday, the seven-member panel presided over by Chief Justice Anin Yeboah announced that the motion has been struck out.
This was after counsel for the petitioner Tsatsu Tsikata moved the motion regarding the stay of proceedings it had filed on January 21, 2021.
It was the case of the court that once the petitioner has already filed witness statements for the hearing to continue, the application for stay will no longer hold.
The apex court will now continue with the election petition hearing in accordance to C.I. 99, that provides the court with strict timelines regarding election adjudication.
