Election 2016: Court determines PNC's fate November 10
An Accra High court presided over by Justice Efua Novisi Aryene has set Monday, November 10, 2016 to rule on the suit by the PNC challenging the disqualification of its flag bearer, Dr. Edward Mahama in Election 2016.
The PNC on October 28, 2016 filed a suit against the Electoral Commission (EC), praying the court to clear its Flag bearer to contest in the December 7 polls.
Dr Mahama was disqualified on the grounds that some of the subscribers who endorsed his nomination forms from the regions, forged signatures while others endorsed more than one candidate.
The EC has been sued by several of the 13 political parties whose presidential nominees were disqualified from the December 7 race.
The PNC is praying the court to restore its constitutional rights and quash the decision of the EC disqualifying the leader and for him to be included in the polls.
