We want the court to compel the Electoral Commission to organize a re-run of the election in the constituency”. Dr. Grace Ayensu noted.

There were so many irregularities and illegal acts that we have outlined in that petition. We are also seeking an annulment of votes and obviously, when that happens, a rerun of the election between Dr. Grace Ayensu Dankwa and Joe Ghartey will occur”. Layer David Ametefe indicated.
He indicates that they are urging the court to organize a re-run of the election between Mr. Joe Ghartey and Dr. Grace Ayensu Danquah.
