Until yesterday, a Writ of Mandamus to compel the EC to re-collate and re-declare the results was expected to be filed at the court.

The NDC in a series of press conferences last week, made several claims only to be hit by recorded video evidence of Collation and declaration.

However, speaking on the issue, a member of the NDC legal team, Baba Jamal explained that the Party had to withdraw their suit because they do not have adequate evidence of wrongdoing.

“They started with the collation and stopped when the confusion started so we were unable to sign the documents but the Returning Officers said he reached out to us but we were not around. And we said fine just give us a copy of it whether we signed or not but he refused. Do you think it is with good intention we were refused documents?

“You don’t go to court empty-handed. We go with the evidence, we don’t have a summary sheet, declaration form and we don’t know what happened. How do we protest the results in court? Because we don’t have any evidence against the results?” He added.
