General News of Thursday, 11 April 2013
President John Mahama has been served with the affidavits of evidence filed by the petitioners in the election dispute case before the Supreme Court, according to Citi FM.
The action comes a few days after a member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) legal team, Tsatsu Tsikata told the Supreme Court that the NDC had not been served with the affidavits and thus were unable to file theirs accordingly, as ordered by the Justices of the Supreme Court.
Citi News is reliably informed that President Mahama was served through his lawyers.
The latest development thus gives the president five days within which to reply by way of affidavit evidence to pave way for the smooth commencement of the case on the 16th of April 2013.
It is recalled that petitioners to the election dispute filed their affidavit evidence on Sunday as ordered by the court.
