A seven-member panel of the Supreme Court presided by Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah has adopted five major issues that the Supreme Court would be considering for the 2020 Presidential election petition.

The apex court after a pre-trial on Wednesday said the Court would be considering issues including whether or not the petition reveals any reasonable course of action.

The court will also be determining whether or not any of the candidates obtained majority votes, to be declared the winner.
