Flashback: Justice Anin Yeboah Called For A Re-Run Of 2012 Election; He Said No Party Had 50% -Video

Chief Justice, Justice Annin Yeboah, was part of the panel of Judges that heard the 2012 general election petition. Justice Annin Yeboah in his judgement stated that the Electoral Commission should conduct a re run of the general elections.

In that 2012 election petition the Supreme Court ruled that former President Mahama was legally elected in a 5-4 ruling. The Justices that heard the petition were nine (9) and 4 out of 9 said that the election should be rerun. Justice Annin Yeboah was part of these four (4) Justices.

During his appearance before the appointment committee of parliament when he was nominated by President Nana Addo to be a Chief Justice, he said that none of the parties had 50% plus one (1) vote. He was asked by Hon. Okudzato Ablakwa why he had made that ruling in the 2012 election petition.

He explained further that he said that because to him the election was flawed with so much irregularities. So he thinks it was right for the electoral commission to conduct a rerun of the election.
