Ghanaian renown lawyer, Tsatsu Tsikata has recently insisted that none of the presidential candidates who took part in the Just ended polls had 50%.
According to Lawyer Tsikata, none of the participants of the 2020 election met the constitutional threshold of 50 per cent of votes cast.
The Lead counsel for Ex-President Mahama in the 2020 Election Petition case alleged that votes was given to the NPP.
To him, the Electoral Commission Boss Jean Mensa decided to give votes to President Akufo-Addo.
Madam Jean Mensa did that in order to declare the New Patriotic Party (NPP) winners of the 2020 Election.
In an interview with KSM on the KSM Show last Friday, Tsatsu Tsikata expressed discomfort with the Supreme Court.
He said he believes the Supreme Court was not fair to the NDC and John Mahama.
He added that the Supreme Court did not allow the EC Boss to testify and it wasn’t nice.
Tsatsu Tsikata however believes believes that the 2020 Election was not fair.
According to the Lawyer, the Election wasn’t won legitimately by anyone. This is because none of the candidates met the 50 per cent +1 threshold.
He expressed that the there was something problematic about the Judgement.
“Fundamentally, what I think is most problematic about the judgement is that, we have a situation in this country now where if you base yourself on the Declaration that was made by the Chairperson […] there was not a constitutionally valid Declaration because no candidate got 50%.
“Mr Nana Akufo-Addo got 49.625% based on the numbers that she herself had announced. Now what the court then said was that, the next day, there [were] some corrections issued by the EC but those corrections were not by the Chairperson [Returning Officer]; they were unsigned press releases. Even more important, the numbers in those corrections were different from the numbers on which the court was basing itself as the results of the election.” – Tsatsu Tsikata Said.
