The Managing Editor of the Daily Searchlight Kenneth Agyei Kuranchie has said that he would correct the errors in the suit he filed against former President John Dramani Mahama
The apex court on Tuesday, November 14 found the application defective.
Speaking to journalists after the dismissal of his case, Mr Kuranchie who is also a private legal practitioner said “We have been having discussions about this process for about two weeks now and this was envisaged as a possible outcome.
“As lawyers, when we come to court, sometimes you win, and sometimes you lose but you take it along in your stride then you go for a better day. Today was not my day, the next time I do better, I will make sure the processes are better the next time.
“Sometimes these oversights happen. I shall be contesting primaries, after the primaries, 2nd December I will have more time to correct the documents and come back.”
The reliefs he was seeking include, “A declaration that on a true and proper interpretation of Article 66 (1) of the 1992 Constitution the number of years of a presidential term in Ghana is four years.
“A declaration that upon a true and proper interpretation of Article 66 (1) and (2) of the 1992 Constitution, a person seeking a second presidential term must be a sitting president.
Mr Mahama was recently elected flagbearer of the NDC for the 2024 general elections.
During the NDC’s primaries held on Saturday, May 13, 2023, he swept 297,603 (98.9%) of the total valid votes to become the party’s Presidential Candidate for the 4th time.
