With 32 days to the polls in Ghana, it is no wonder disqualified parties are at the heels of the Electoral Commission. Using the High Court as a mediator, they have sought a reversal of the EC’s decision to kick them out of the race. It began with Dr. Paa Kwesi Ndoum and today Hassan Ayariga’s disqualification has been reversed by the High Court.
However, the EC headed by Charlotte Osei is relentless and as a sign of showing how firm their initial decision was, have challenged Dr. Ndoum’s reversal at a higher court. It would not come as a surprise if Hassan Ayariga’s reversal is met with a challenge from the EC at a higher court as well.
