The NDC in the letter said it was making the refund demand in accordance with regulations 46 (1) and 46 (3) of CI, 127 which spells out a condition for a refund of deposit made to the presidential or parliamentary candidates.

“A presidential or parliamentary candidate must obtain a minimum of 25 percent and 12.5 percent respectively in a general election to qualify for a refund, we will be grateful if you could refund their deposit into the NDC account with GBC Bank Limited, Accra-Newtown branch, A/C: 1181130011568”

The Supreme Court will tomorrow give its final verdict on the challenge placed by John Mahama to the election results.
