Following the submission of the APC/NEC Lawyers last week seeking for the matter to be thrown out of the court, it took the celebrated constitutional lawyer, Dr. Bu Buakei Jabbi, who is representing the SLPP in this matter, two good days in submitting his points as to why the matter should go on.
The APC/NEC lawyers argued that the matter was not properly laid before the court, and as such, must be struck out.
Citing Election Petition Rules and other relevant constitutional provisions, Dr. Jabbi said the argument of the APC/NEC lawyers do not hold sway.
He furthered that the matter should be allowed to go on in the interest of democracy.
Following days of legal arguments, the matter now stands adjourned indefinitely as the public awaits ruling on these arguments.
If the Supreme Court rules in favour of the SLPP Lawyers, it will mean a first victory for the opposition/petitioners, and the case will commence in harness.
Otherwise, it will mean a complete victory for APC and NEC, and the ‘end’ of the election petition matter.
