The courts have adjourned to Friday, three suits filed separately by three flag bearers of the National Democratic Party (NDP), People’s National Convention (PNC) and All People’s Congress (APC), challenging their disqualification from the presidential race in December.
Lawyers for the Electoral Commission failed to show up when cases of the NDP and PNC were called at two separate courts because Mr Thadeous Sory, lead counsel for the election management body, was attending to the APC case in another court room.
The judge that sat on the PNC case awarded a cost of GHS500 against the EC.
Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings of the NDP, Hassan Ayariga of the APC and Dr Edward Mahama of the PNC were among 10 other presidential aspirants disqualified by the Electoral Commission from participating in the December polls for anomalies on their nomination forms.
The aspirants are contesting their disqualification in court.
