The High Court is set to rule on Marricke Kofi Gane’s disqualification case on Monday, November 30, 2020.
The Criminal Court 2 Division of the High Court presided over by Her Ladyship Elfreda Amy Dankyi disclosed this on Tuesday, November 24, 2020, after the Electoral Commission filed a response to the suit.
Marricke Kofi Gane was seeking to contest this year’s presidential elections as an independent candidate but was disqualified by the EC on the grounds of fake signatures.
The commission later referred the matter to the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police for further investigations and possible prosecution.
But the EC, later said the police came to the conclusion that a number of the signatures endorsing his forms were fake.
Mr. Gane, who was not happy with the decision took the EC to court.
He wants the court to overturn the decision by the EC and order the commission to give him the opportunity to correct the mistakes on his forms and put him on the ballot paper.
