The Supreme Court has set Tuesday, February 16, to govern on whether the 2020 National Democratic Congress official applicant, John Mahama, ought to be permitted to return his case. 


The previous President's legal advisors on Monday encouraged the court to concede their solicitation saying they expect to summon Electoral Commission Chairperson (EC), Mrs Jean Mensa to affirm. 


This follows a prior decision by the peak court that it can't propel a gathering for a situation to show proof if the gathering would not like to do as such. 


Contending his case, lead counsel for Mr Mahama, Tsatsu Tsikata told the court that claims of vote cushioning and guidance from the EC Chairperson to their agents at the EC solid room have come up during the preliminary. 


He demanded these are matters just the EC Chairperson can address. 


As indicated by him, they were overwhelmed when the EC Chairperson picked not to affirm in the wake of presenting an observer articulation, thus the choice to return the case and request a summon. 


In any case, this solicitation was contradicted by attorneys for the EC and President Nana Akufo-Addo, the first and second Respondents in the political decision request hearing. 


The two sides demand that the candidate is basically trying to utilize the secondary passage to help a request he has flopped woefully to demonstrate. 


The two legal counselors further contended that on the off chance that the journey is to give new proof, at that point Mr Mahama's group had neglected to show that there is a piece of proof they can remove from the EC Chairperson with the possibility to tangibly influence how the case is resolved. 


The court has suspended procedures to Tuesday, February 16 to convey its decision.
