Lawyer Tsikata in an interview said: “I come to a clear determination, that there were errors made in the decisions… and I make no bones about saying so; and respectfully explaining why I say so in the manner I think, I have illustrated in this discussion, not out of disrespect for the judges, or trying to make fun of them, no. It is out of the importance of their role… and the importance of their fidelity to the Constitution and to the law”.
Speaking in an exclusive interview on TV3, dubbed ‘Tsatsu Speaks’; Lawyer Tsikata insisted that, the Supreme Court of Ghana made errors in its election 2020 rulings. He explained that; “Each of the judges had a chance to articulate the reasons and to explain their point of view from a legal authority standpoint. In this last petition, I think as we all saw virtually in all the decisions, the Chief Justice will write an opinion and everybody was on board”.
Lawyer Tsikata added that; in the election 2012 Petition rulings, all the judges gave reasons for their positions, and took on the main points of the case, but the election 2020 petition rulings were not the case. He stated that; “Each of the judges had a chance to articulate the reasons and to explain their point of view from a legal authority standpoint. In this last petition, I think as we all saw virtually in all the decisions, the Chief Justice will write an opinion and everybody was on board”.
The Supreme Court; in the election 2020 petition judgment, unanimously dismissed the petition of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate- John Dramani Mahama .
