Supreme Court orders EC to give copies of collation forms to parties

The Supreme Court has ordered the Electoral Commission to make available columns on both the Parliamentary and Presidential Elections Result Collation Forms where the Returning Officer, and the candidates or their agents can append their signatures.

The seven member panel of Judges chaired by Justice William Atuguba, also ordered that the two collation forms at the various constituencies should be made available to the candidates or their agents.

A private legal practitioner, Kwesi Nyame Tease Eshun filed the suit against the EC claiming that the Commission failed to make mandatory provision in CI 94 requiring the returning officer to furnish both the presidential and parliamentary candidates and their agents with copies of the collation forms.

This he claims is not fair, transparent and does not promote or secure free and fair elections.
