John Dramani Mahama, a former president, might not be qualified to run in the 2024 elections.
The Supreme Court has received a lawsuit that questions the former president’s eligibility — Kenneth Kwabena Kuranchie, the plaintiff, is asking the court to grant him 13 reliefs.
Key among them are;
- a pronouncement that the length of a presidential term in Ghana is based on a true and proper interpretation of article 66 (1) of the 1992 constitution.
- declaration that a candidate for a second term in office must already be the president, according to a true and proper interpretation of Sections 66(1) and (2) of the Constitution of 1992.
Presidents Kuffour and Mahama are the second and third defendants in “an order directed at President Kuffour and President John Mahama to compel them to make available to parliament, all engagements not to do with matters of the state of Ghana”
The lawsuit also demands that John Mahama seek legislative authorization before serving as the NDC’s flag bearer or risk having his bid for the presidency rejected.
