The High Court, which is also the third highest Court in the hierarchy of the Superior Court has set Monday, November 30, 2020, to deliver its ruling base on the case in which Marricke Kofi Gane is challenging his disqualification from the 2020 polls.
The Criminal Court 2 Division of the High Court presided over by Her Ladyship Elfreda Amy Dankyi disclosed this on Tuesday, November 24, 2020, after the Electoral Commission filed its response to the suit.
Mr. Gane, who contested the 2020 Presidential Election as an independent presidential candidate was disqualified from the race in October 2020 because he was suspected of forgery.
The above allegation was levelled on him due to some forged signatures in his nominations.
The EC Boss, Jane Mensa, went a step further to report the case to the Criminal Investigative Department of the Police Service for an in-depth investigation on the case.
According the drawn conclusion of the EC, there quite a number of forges signatures in his filing.
Very disheartening to him, Mr. Gane called on the High Court’s supervisory jurisdiction in an application for review of the EC’s decision to disqualify him from the 2020 polls.
Mr. Gane wants the court repeal the decision of the Electoral Commission to disqualify him from the 2020 Presidential Election. To also order the Commission to afford him with an opportunity to correct any errors found in his nomination.
He later told the court that, he wants his name to appear on the ballot paper.
