BACKGROUND;

Since Ghana’s return to democratic rule in 1992, the threat of election as a means to destabilizing the entire country was conspicuous in the 2008 and 2012 general elections. In the 2008 election, some youth believed to be from the National Democratic Congress besieged the Electoral Commission premises, calling on the electoral commission to quickly declare its candidate as the winner. The intervention of the security agencies forestalled any potential violence. After the 2012 election, amidst allegations of rigging and electoral fraud, the country, for the first time, witnessed the challenge of the provisional result of the presidential poll as declared by the Electoral Commission in the Supreme Court of Ghana by the losing main opposition party, NPP. The core grounds for the petition were, among others, allegations of multiple-voting, voting without biometric verification, absence of the signature of a presiding officer, duplicate serial numbers for pink sheets, and fictitious polling stations…
