Supreme Court dismisses Abu Ramadan’s review application

Abu RamadanAbu RamadanThe Supreme Court has by a unanimous decision dismissed a review application filed by Peoples National Convention Youth Organiser, Abu Ramadan that sought the court to reverse an earlier relief it granted the party’s General Secretary, Bernard Mornah on the unconstitutionality of the courts sitting on holidays while hearing an election petition.  

That decision also outlawed provisions of CI 74 (71) which prohibited the Supreme Court from entertaining any review application when it decides an election petition.

The Court ruled that Abu Ramadan had no capacity to file the review because he was not a party to the original case and deferred reasons for its decision to October.
