The lead counsel for John Mahama in the election petition case, Tsatsu Tsikata has filed a fresh application at the Supreme Court praying the Court for a review of its ruling in relation to a leave seeking to reopen the case.

The Supreme court last Thursday ruled that Mrs. Jean Mensa could not be compelled to testify in the matter, and shot down the Petitioner’s request to have the EC chairperson subpoenaed.

In the 32-page application, Mr. Mahama said the Supreme Court erred in law when it ruled against their quest to cause the respondents to present witnesses in the matter.

Meanwhile, Mr. Mahama wants the Supreme Court to suspend hearings on the substantive election petition matter pending the hearing of the review application.

He argued in a 49-page application for stay of proceeding that his case would be caused irreparable damage if the court proceeds to hear the closing addresses while his application for review is still pending.

The apex court had directed all parties in the hearing to file their written addresses by tomorrow and for the Court to hear them on Friday.
