In less than 24 hours, the apex court of the land will begin proceedings on the petition brought before it by the NDC's 2020 flagbearer; John Dramani Mahama, seeking to re-collate and announce a rerun of the just ended elections.
Before the official hearing, the petitioner has filed a motion on notice seeking to amend a mistake it made in it's petition and also asking the court to televise the whole process. A legal team member of the 2nd respondent of the petition in an interview with Joy FM's Kwesi Parker Wilson hinted that, his side will raise an objection on the amendment but will second the request for a live telecast of the process to expose the inconsistencies of the petitioner.
It is not yet clear which of the supreme court judges will be sitting on this petition but 9 out of the 19 supreme court judges will be appointed by the chief justice. Lawyer Abraham Amaliba, legal team member of the petitioner has said, his side will not raise any objection against any of the judges selected by the chief justice.
