BY: Arku Jasmine

Chairman of the Electoral Commission, Dr Kwadwo Afari-Gyan goes back into the witness box to be cross-examined by lead counsel for the petitioners, Mr Philip Addison on Day 31 of the election petition hearing.

Dr Afari-Gyan began his evidence-in-chief on behalf of the Commission on Thursday May 30, 2013.

The presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo; his running mate, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, and the Chairman of the NPP, Mr Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey, are alleging that over-voting, non-signing of pink sheets by some presiding officers or their assistants, voting without biometric verification and duplicated serial numbers of pink sheets occurred during the December 7 and 8, 2012 presidential election.

They are, therefore, calling for the annulment of 4.3 million votes.

However, President Mahama, the EC and the NDC have denied that any such irregularities occurred during the election.

So far, Dr Bawumia and Mr Nketia have testified.
