“The NDC legal team is made up of propaganda lawyers. They are not good lawyers to represent any political party and you can see the rippling effect on their party”, Mr. Antwi-Boasiako told Wontumionline.com.
His comments were line with the decision by the Supreme Court to unanimously dismiss a case filed by the NDC to stop the EC from compiling a new voter’s register for the December 2020 polls.
Prior to the judgement, the NDC had filed a case at the Supreme Court to challenge the Electoral Commission’s constitutional mandate to hold a mass registration exercise and compile a new voter’s register.
The party also sought declaration on the constitutionality of the EC to exclude the voters ID card as part of the identification requirements for the exercise.
Along the line, the party dropped their case on whether or not the EC should conduct the exercise but their petition on the exclusion of the voters’ ID card remained before the law court.
In adding his voice, the flagbearer for the NDC, Mr. John Mahama, expressed his disappointment with the Supreme Court ruling on the matter of the compilation of the new voters register by the Electoral Commission.
During a press conference last Thursday evening at the party’s headquarters, he noted that “With or without a new voters register, the NDC shall win this election by the grace of God,” he said.
Adding that “No politically engineered register can save this failed government from the inevitable defeat that awaits them in the next 165 days.”
