Mensa on the National Democratic 

Congress as she says Mahamas election 

petition incompetent.

Electoral commission(EC) has described the election petition filed by the NDC’s 

John Dramani Mahama as incompetent.

NPP, His excellency Nana Akufo Addos commission has served notice of its intention to urge the Supreme Court to dismiss the matter immediately than to allow it travel mandatory 42 days.

The NDC leader John Dramani Mahama 

Is in the Apex court asking that it nullifies 

the election results that saw Akufo Ado declared as winner.

The ex president John Dramani Mahama gives reasons that His excellency Nana Akufo Addo  benefited from the arithmetic errors and voting pendings.

The Electoral Commission (EC) Jane Mensa name as a defendant in the petition as required by law.

Justin Amenuvor, the lawyer for the commission has filed 13 pages on the petition.

He argues that the Electoral Commission chairperson in her declaration without her knowledge read out the figures representing the total number of votes cast as the total number of valid votes as the percentage of Mr Akufo Addo as 51.9% instead of 51.295%.

This the commission says it’s subsequently corrected insisting it did not affect the overall results declared. 

Mr Mahamaargues  that if he obtained all the votes in Techiman south, then the NPP’s Nana Akufo Addo will end up with less then the 50 plus one votes.

The EC Jane Mensa says the votes (results) it obtained from its officials do not support this view.

This results, the Electoral Commission say have been available before John Dramani Mahama filedhis petition.

The Electoral Commission says the allegation of the pending votes are untrue.
