Ghana's supreme court orders check of opposition's evidence to challenge election results

ACCRA,- Ghana's Supreme Court on Thursday ordered a recounting of the collation sheets submitted by the opposition as evidence to challenge the 2012 presidential election results.

The order followed a request by the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) that the collation sheets submitted by petitioners fell far short of the 11,842 pieces they claimed.

NDC's counsel Tsatsu Tsikata requested the court to allow a head count of all the collation sheets, a plea that was also supported by Tony Lithur, counsel for President John Dramani Mahama, and James Quarshie-Idun, head of the legal team of the National Electoral Commission (EC).

The court has appointed an accounting firm, KPMG, with the consent of all parties, to conduct the recounting. But it is not clear when the recounting will start.

President Mahama was declared re-elected by EC two days after the Dec. 7 presidential election.

According to the Commission, Mahama took 50.7 percent of the vote, narrowly avoiding a run-off against his closest rival Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who took 47.7 percent.

Citing irregularities in the new biometric voting system, NPP has requested the EC to nullify the results.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
