Philip Addison
Mr Philip Addison had, on Monday, July 15, 2013, confronted the Returning Officer of the December 2012 presidential election, Dr Kwadwo Afari-Gyan, with his clients' version of collated results from the Ledzokuku Constituency which showed vote padding in favour of President Mahama.
However, Mr Addison withdrew those figures during the court's sitting in Accra yesterday on the grounds that his attention had been drawn to the fact that the figures he had churned out on Monday were not correct.
Lead counsel for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Tsatsu Tsikata, who had earlier accused Mr Addison of deliberately churning out false figures, also attempted to make an interjection, but Mr Justice William Atuguba stopped both of them.
Reminding Mr Tsikata that Mr Addison had conceded to his (Mr Tsikata's) assertion that the figures from the Ledzokuku Constituency were wrong, Mr Justice Atuguba told the respondents that Mr Addison should rather be commended for withdrawing the figures.
Reminding Mr Tsikata that Mr Addison had conceded to his (Mr Tsikata's) assertion that the figures from the Ledzokuku Constituency were wrong, Mr Justice Atuguba told the respondents that Mr Addison should rather be commended for withdrawing the figures.
Counsel had argued that the witness had, in his testimony, stated that the allegations of padding had been abandoned and also added that Mr Addison's allegations with respect to the Ledzokuku Constituency were "patently false".
Mr Addison responded that he was conducting his cross-examination and advised Mr Tsikata to raise those issues later.
Mr Tsikata, however, stood his ground and insisted that Mr Addison could not put false issues to Dr Afari-Gyan, but Mrs Justice Sophia Adinyira advised him to use the word "incorrect" instead of "false".
Mr Tsikata obliged and insisted that Mr Addison's action on the Ledzokuku Constituency figures was "not professionally correct".
Continuing with his argument, Mr Addison told the court that Dr Bawumia did not have the full complement of the pink sheets from some constituencies but that did not prevent the petitioners from confronting the EC, which had the full complement of documents and also had answers to issues on the elections.
Mr Addison held that the issue of vote padding in favour of President Mahama was part of the pleadings of the petitioners and also submitted that the essence of his cross-examination was to touch on the credibility of the witness.
Mr Addison then informed the court that paragraph 24 of the amended petition had named particular constituencies where complaints of irregularities were made and wondered why the respondents were objecting to "these simple, simple questions".
The court, after considering the arguments from the parties, returned with the 7-2 ruling and explained that the two dissenting judges had done so because the further and better particulars provided by the petitioners with respect to padding were restricted to three polling stations.
Mr Addison then withdrew the allegations on the figures from the Ledzokuku Constituency, but the court's ruling gave his side the room to bring out a list for nine constituencies whose pink sheets were missing.
Mr Addison took Dr Afari-Gyan through each of the nine constituencies and told the witness that total valid votes cast in each of those constituencies were exceeded by the tally of pink sheets from those constituencies.
Mr Addison summed up the statutory violations, omissions, malpractices and irregularities and told the witness that 3,916,385 total votes were affected by the said violations.
After a back and forth interaction between the bench and the lawyers in the case, the bench gave Mr Addison the chance to cross-examine Dr Afari-Gyan on the said pink sheets.
Lawyer Philip Addison, ..., 24 June 2013 [cached]
Lawyer Philip Addison, Petitioners' Lead Counsel Lawyer Philip Addison, Petitioners' Lead CounselThe petitioners challenging the declaration of Mr John Dramani Mahama as President are requesting the Supreme Court to direct the Electoral Commission (EC) to produce collation forms for 13 constituencies.
According to the petitioners, the granting of their request would enable their lead counsel, Mr Philip Addison, to do an effective cross-examination of the Chairman of the EC, Dr Kwadwo Afari-Gyan, "to demonstrate that the petitioners brought the instant action in good faith".

Philip Addison, Counsel for Petitioners Philip Addison, Counsel for PetitionersA request for an order directed at the Electoral Commission (EC) to furnish petitioners with collation forms for 13 constituencies was yesterday turned down by the Supreme Court.
Turning to President Mahama's affidavit in opposition, Mr Addison indicated that the President's affidavit in opposition was filed twice, namely on June 24 and June 25, 2013, and further denied assertions that the petitioners' request would open the floodgates for more requests to be made in future.
He maintained that each and every application was determined on its own merit and, "therefore, the issue of floodgates being opened do not arise here".
Reacting to the NDC's affidavit in opposition, Mr Addison refuted claims by the NDC that his clients were embarking on a fishing expedition.
He also stated that the petitioners would have made the application if they had the full complement of the pink sheets.
Counsel for the NDC, Mr Tsatsu Tsikata, described the petitioners' application as incompetent on the grounds that the rules referred to by Mr Addison applied to election offences and hearing of election petitions at the High Court.
Mr Justice N. S. Gbadegbe at that stage intervened and informed Mr Addison that the petitioners should have made the application earlier to which Mr Addison explained later that issues came up later in the day.
Mr Justice Gbadegbe also reminded Mr Addison that such applications could be brought under "very, very exceptional circumstances".
