The Supreme Court has granted by a 6 ? 3 majority decision the joinder motion brought by the governing National Democratic Congress seeking to be joined to the election petition filed by the opposition New Patriotic Party.

The nine-member panel last week heard arguments from the lead counsel for the NDC, Mr Tsatsu Tsikata who insisted the governing party offered President John Mahama the platform to contest for the presidency and was thus an interested party whose interest would be injured if it was not allowed to join the petition as a respondent.

Counsel for the petitioners ? Nana Akufo-Addo (Presidential candidate of the NPP), Dr Mahamudu Bawumia (running mate to Akufo-Addo) and NPP Chairman, Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey)
