The legal team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has raised concerns over the composition of the 7 member panel that has been put together to hear the 2020 election petition currently before the Supreme Court.

Despite admitting it was the right of the Chief Justice to empanel, Director of Legal Affairs of the NDC, Abraham Amaliba, bemoaned the absence of some persons he finds more experienced on the team.

He said “There are some experienced judges who should have been part of this team. Justice Dotse, Justice Baffoe Bonnie should have been part of this because they were part of the 2012 election petition and their experiences would be key to the determination of this matter.”

“This is not a panel that will sit on the case. This is a panel that will determine the application. We cannot question that directly. I told you that it is the right of the Chief Justice to empanel but that right of the Chief Justice can be questioned. We would want the panel to reflect a balanced panel.”

The 2020 flagbearer of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama, is in court challenging the results of the just ended presidential election that was declared for the incumbent Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
