The Supreme Court has deferred today’s court hearing of the election case to 11:30am instead of the regular starting time of 9:30am following a letter to the bench by the Petitioner former President John Mahama.

The petitioner in his letter asked the court to delay the hearing to enable him factor the respondents’ opposition to his review application.

“I received a call from the Registrar of the Court close to midnight, notifying me of Respondents’ filed affidavits opposing Petitioner’s application for review, soft copies of which he had sent to my email at 11.13 pm. I forwarded the processes to Lead Counsel for Petitioner at 11.30 pm.

“In order to allow Lead Counsel for Petitioner reasonable time to factor the said affidavits into his arguments in support of the application for review, I would respectfully request that this morning’s proceedings be commenced at 11.3o instead of the scheduled 9.30,” the letter stated.

Meanwhile, the court directed the parties to file their written addresses on Wednesday.

The petitioner is however praying to review its decision against their motion to reopen their case in order to compel the EC chair to be cross-examined.
