The EC in its response to the petition by the NDC and its flagbearer tasked the apex court to thrash the suit because it is untenable.

”The full results of the December 7 presidential election was known to the petitioner and that the claims in the petition are contrived, have no legal basis and ought to be dismissed,” the EC argued.

John Mahama, in his challenge is calling on the Supreme Court to order for a re-run of the presidential errors due to errors and irregularities.
