The Judicial Board of the Students’ Representative Council of the University of Ghana is currently hearing the case brought before it against the Electoral Commission on the nullification of votes cast in three polling stations in the ongoing UGSRC elections.
The Electoral Commission over the weekend announced that they had nullified the voting result of some four polling stations.
The four include Commonwealth Hall polling station, Mensah Sarbah polling station, Jean Nelson Aka Hall polling station and the Korle-Bu campus polling station.
In a release signed by the Chairman of the EC, Mr. Roland Eyram Tettey, the nullification of the results in those polling stations is as a result of cases of overvoting and other electoral irregularities.
He added that technical difficulties and the subsequent resignation of the Electoral Commissioner at the Korle-Bu Campus necessitated the cancelling of results.
The court is then set to have a final determination of the matter on whether or not the petitioners have a genuine concern.
The direction of the court’s decision will highly be influenced by the submissions from the legal brains for both the petition(s) and respondent(s).
