Jean Mensa to Supreme Court: "I have never told Mahama I want to testify"

The Electoral Commission Chairperson, Jean Mensa, is urging the Supreme Court not to allow 2020 NDC flagbearer, John Mahama to reopen his election petition case.

The former President who petitioned the apex court over the results of last December’s polls on Thursday lost a bid to compel the EC boss to take the witness stand and be cross-examined.

Tsatsu Tsikata, the lead counsel for Mr. Mahama’s has since filed fresh documents indicating a desire to ask the Court on Monday to be allowed to reopen its case.

This, they explain is to afford them the opportunity to subpoena Mrs Mensa to mount the witness stand and testify.

The Electoral Commission through its chairperson Jean Mensah has filed an affidavit in opposition to this request.

Mrs Mensa argued that at no point has she ever indicated a desire to testify in the ongoing hearing.

“At no time have I informed the petitioner or his lawyers of my desire to testify in this case”, the affidavit states.

She said should the court even grant the request for the case to be reopened, it should not order her to testify since such a decision will defeat its earlier ruling that she cannot be compelled to testify.
