EC files affidavits

The Electoral Commission (EC) has filed its affidavit in the presidential election petition.

The affidavits were sent to the court by Mr Amadu Sulley, a deputy Chairman of the Commission Tuesday afternoon.

Attached to the 15-paragraph affidavit included seven exhibits.

The Supreme Court had early on in the day adjourned hearing of the substantive Election Petition case following the insistence by the petitioners to be served with copies of the respondents affidavits as earlier directed by the court.

Even though EC has filed its affidavits in compliance to the court’s directive it is yet unclear if the petitioners could be served before hearing on Wednesday.

It is the administrative function of the court to serve the various parties with relevant documents.

The Court will continue hearing tomorrow.
