You don’t have evidence to order rerun – Supreme Court dismisses Mahama’s petition

Mr. John Mahama

The Supreme Court of Ghana on Thursday unanimously dismissed the election 2020 petition before it by former president John Dramani Mahama, affirming President Akufo-Addo validly won the elections.

Mahama was at the apex court to pray for a rerun of the polls, arguing none of the candidates who contested the election obtained more than 50% of the votes cast.

Mahama alleged that the second respondent, President Akufo-Addo won the election through vote padding.

He also claimed the candidate benefitted from arithmetic and computational errors. He concludes that the EC’s declaration of President Akufo-Addo is unconstitutional since he did not obtain more than 50% of the votes cast.

On Thursday, the court concluded that Mahama failed to adduce evidence to his claims and therefore the case has been dismissed because it was without merit.
