The Court granted the NDC’s application to join the respondents named in the NPP’s petition challenging the results of the 2012 Presidential elections.
“My joy is that now that the NDC is being joined if the case goes against them, then they will have no way of complaining that they were not giving the opportunity to join. The way is clear now and the main matter can be.”
According to Sir John, the NPP have no intentions to seek a review on the Courts decision. “We are okay, the NDC will join and the full matter will be heard and that is our [NPP] joy.”
