Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Samuel Nartey George, has hinted that a John Mahama presidency will push more lawyers sympathetic towards the opposition National Democratic Congress to the Supreme Court.

His comments followed the apex court’s ruling on the matter brought before it against the Electoral Commission by the National Democratic Congress challenging the documentation for the compilation of the new voters’ register.

The NDC was praying that court to, among other things, order the EC to accept the old voter’s ID as a requirement for one to acquire the new voter’s ID.

The Supreme Court, on Thursday, June 25, 2020, however, ruled against the National Democratic Congress and denied their request, paving way for the EC to continue with the planned compilation of a new voter’s register with passport and Ghana Card as primary source document.

Speaking on Accra-based Power FM, the ranking member of the opposition NDC, made comments suggesting that the ruling of the Supreme Court Justices was to favour their nominating authority.

According to him, should John Mahama get the nod to lead the country again in the forthcoming election, more lawyers sympathetic to the NDC will be pushed to the apex court.

He added that Appeal’s Court judges who may have been overlooked for promotion because they are perceived not to be aligned to the governing party and will thus not kowtow to their influence will be promoted by the John Mahama government.

“The Supreme court has done their part. If someone sends you somewhere and tells you ‘this is why I have brought you here’ wouldn’t you work in their interest? I thank God that during the vetting of His Lordship Yoni Kulendi, when he was nominated to the Supreme Court, he was asked whether he thinks there should be an upper limit at the Supreme Court. His answer was in the negative. We pray that on December 7, 2021, John Mahama will be sworn in as President of Ghana again.

“There are many members of the National Democratic Congress and lawyers who qualify to be at the Supreme Court. If it’s twenty or thirty that we would need, we the Grassroots will remember John Mahama of those people. When he becomes President, we will show him those lawyers who are qualified and those at the Appeals Court today that have missed their promotion because of that fear that they will rather lookout for the national interest. All these people, we will bring them out. They also deserve the Supreme Court,” the Ningo-Prampram MP argued.
