Ghana |

The Electoral Commission says it has responded to the New Patriotic Party’s petition filed at the Supreme Court challenging the results of the 2012 elections.

Chairman of the Electoral Commission, Dr. Afari Djan told Citi News that they submitted their response to the Supreme Court on Monday.

“We have submitted our response to the NPP's petition to court. They [NPP] have made an allegation and we have responded to the Supreme Court so we will leave the court to decide” Dr. Afari Gyan said.
The NPP have disputed results of the 2012 elections which the Chairman of the EC used to declare John Dramani Mahama as President. President Mahama was sworn in on Monday in a colourful event at the Independence Square.

The NPP on 28th December 2012 filed a petition at the Supreme Court challenging the results of the Presidential elections. The NPP has indicated that it has compelling evidence which would make the Supreme Court overturn the results and declare Nana Akufo Addo as the winner of the Presidential election.
