Listen to this article

Former Attorney General and a member of the NDC legal team Marrietta Brew Appiah Oppong says the Supreme Court is not being fair to the flagbearer of the NDC and petitioner in the 2020 election petition John Mahama.

Her comment comes after a nine-member panel hearing a review application brought by the petitioner was thrown out paving way for substantive hearing on Friday, 29 January 2021.

The supreme court explained that the threshold required as reasons for securing a review of the court ruling on the dismissal of interrogatories to be served on the Electoral Commission has not been met hence their decision.

Speaking to Journalists after the sitting on Thursday, 28 January 2021 Ms. Marrietta Brew Oppong said: “The rulings coming out are short unlike 2013 when there were detailed rulings…we have to say that the petitioner is not being treated fairly,” she said, adding “it is not unfortunate but we have to say it as it is, the petitioner is not being treated fairly…so we disagree with the ruling of the Supreme Court, it’s unfortunate but that is their decision so there isn’t much we can do.”
