A retired justice of the Supreme Court William Atuguba has told parties in the ongoing election petition hearing that they should act within the framework of the law if they disagree with the court’s rulings.
Justice Atuguba who was part of the bench that handled the 2013 election petition hearing indicated that “court decisions on matters of this kind have various impacts and effects, depending on the circumstances in each country.
“What I will say is that even if anybody is aggrieved with the ruling, their reactions should be within the framework of the rule of law.”
“The Supreme Court judges, including the Chief Justice, have been vetted and approved by Parliament, who are the representatives of the people, so it is important for all actors, particularly the lawyers and the adjudicators, to bear in mind at all times that the decision of the court involves the sovereign welfare of the people of Ghana,” he told the Daily Graphic.
Lead counsel of the petitioner in the ongoing election petition hearing Tsatsu Tsikata has yet again made a case for the Supreme Court to reconsider its ruling on Tuesday, February 16.
