The legal team of the National Democratic Congress in the ongoing election petition case say they feel vindicated by the evidence given in court by NPP’s Dr. Bawumia.
According to NDC’s legal team, the inconsistencies in Dr. Bawumia’s presentation reflect the weakness of the petitioners’ evidence.
Speaking to the media after hearing on Wednesday, spokesperson for the NDC legal team, Nana Ato Dadzie said Ghanaians will better understand their position when the cross examination of the witness begins.
“We know what our friends from the other side have, they have rolled out their evidence…so we know what they have”.
“We simply feel comfortable and we are waiting to have the opportunity [for] our team cross-examine Dr. Bawumia.
“We would want to draw a distinction between allegations and then evidence”.
But the New Patriotic Party said it believes it has had a good start in court.
Gloria Akuffo told Journalists that their case will get even better as it progresses.
“I have nothing to complain about, I have found it satisfactory, I think it is a good start and it is our expectation that it would get even better” Madam Gloria Akuffo stated.
