Kwaku Azar writes… The election petition


Read Time: < 1 minute

The election petition Court held its first hearing today (see updated calendar). The panel comprises of Anin Yeboah (CJ), Yaw Appau, Marful Sau, Nene Amegatcher, Prof Kotey, Mariama Owusu and Getrude Torkonoo.

As expected, the Court granted the petitioner’s motion to amend his petition by the end of the day and ordered the respondents to provide any amended answers by the end of the next day.

There are some noticeable differences between the 2020 Court and the 2012 Court.

First, the CJ is part of the 2020 panel while the then CJ was not on the 2012 panel. Second, the 2020 panel has 7 members compared to the 9 members of the 2012 panel. Third, the 2020 panel has 2 (29%) female justices compared to 3 (33%) in the 2012 panel.

Another interesting observation about the panel is that save for the CJ, the other panelists were not involved in the 2012 petition. This is expected because of retirement. However, some of the 2012 justices, including Dotse and Baffoe-Bonnie are not retired but are not on the panel.

Foxes have dens and birds have nests but #SALL have no seat in Parliament.

Da Yie!

  1. You’re so awesome! I don’t believe I have read a single thing like that before. So great to find someone with some original thoughts on this topic. Really.. thank you for starting this up. This website is something that is needed on the internet, someone with a little originality!

  2. เพื่อนๆคงจำได้ว่าในอดีตการเดิมพันกับเจ้ามือตัวใหม่ไม่ได้มีความสนุกสนานมากนัก เนื่องจากในบางครั้งเจ้ามืออาจใช้ท่าทางกากๆหรือที่ผู้เล่นไม่ถนัดในการนับไพ่ อังกอร์ได้ด้วยความเหนียวย่นของเจ้ามือ สิ่งเหล่านี้อาจทำให้การเดิมพันเป็นเรื่องน่ากลัวและน่าเบื่อตามมาเป็นประจำ
