Lawyers for the petitioner in the ongoing 2020 presidential election petition have asked for more time to file for review.

Instead of court proceeding starting at 9:30 am, Mr. Mahama’s lawyers are praying the Supreme Court to extend Thursday morning’s proceedings to11:30 am.

A letter from Mr. Tony Lithur, a member of the legal team of the petitioner and addressed to the Chief Justice, says the request is to allow Tsatsu Tsikata “reasonable time to factor” affidavits by the respondents opposing the application for review.

“In order to allow Lead Counsel for Petitioner reasonable time to factor the said affidavits into his arguments in support of the application for review, I would respectfully request that this morning’s proceedings be commenced at 11:30 instead of the scheduled 9:30 am,” he requested.

“I received a call from the Registrar of the Court close to midnight, notifying me of Respondents’ filed affidavits opposing Petitioner’s application for review, soft copies of which he had sent to my email at 11:13 pm. I forwarded the processes to the Lead Counsel (Tsatsu Tsikata) for the Petitioner at 11:30 pm.”

“In order to allow Lead Counsel for Petitioner reasonable time to factor the said affidavits into his arguments in support of the application for review, I would respectfully request that this morning’s proceedings be commenced at 11:30 instead of the scheduled 9:30am.

“I count on your kind consideration of our request.”

Yours faithfully,

Tony Lithur
