The Supreme Court has in a consistent choice excused an application by the 2020 NDC official competitor looking for leave to resume his case. 

Mr. John Dramani Mahama, who is the solicitor, had encouraged the court to allow his solicitation saying he expects to summon EC Chairperson, Jean Mensa to affirm. 

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

In any case, contending his case yesterday, lead counsel for Mr Mahama, Tsatsu Tsikata said they were shocked when the EC Chairperson picked not to affirm subsequent to presenting an observer proclamation, consequently the choice to resume the case and request a summon. 

He demands that there are likewise charges that surfaced during the interrogation of their observers and these are matters just the EC Chairperson can address. 

Giving further contentions under the watchful eye of the decision today, Lawyer Tsikata said he has recorded new specialists that will back cases that the Chairperson is an individual and subsequently can be summoned. 

Yet, this solicitation had been restricted by legal advisors for the EC and President Akufo-Addo; the first and second Respondents in the political decision appeal hearing. 

The two sides demand that the candidate is just looking to utilize the secondary passage to help an appeal he has flopped woefully to demonstrate.
