The NDC on January 19, pray the Supreme Court to grant them the request to demand from the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, Mrs Jean Mensa, original Presidential election results forms in her possession for inspection.
They requested in all, a total of six set of different documents from the EC Chair including originals of presidential election results declaration form and records of subsequent update made to it with emphasis on four constituencies in the Greater Accra Region.
Others are originals of Regional and Constituencies’ Presidential Election results collation forms and summary sheets from all the 16 regions of the country.

However, prior to the court ruling, Dr Kpessa-Whytes who was the party’s representative at the EC collation room, popularly known as the strong room indicated in a tweet, he hopes the EC doesn’t drag this particular request by the party.
“I don’t think the EC producing their own original pink sheets should be a problem. Hope they don’t drag this,” he said.
