Many are still wondering on the verdict of Supreme Court ruling in Bayelsa..Why deviate from precedence ? is the questions on lips..
Supreme court judgement in Obasanjo vs Atiku on joint ticket is applicable here , so is Amaechi case.
But the electoral act was amended after the SC decision on Amaechi to say you can’t be declared winner except you take part in the election.
This also affect Faleke, who did not take part in the primaries.
Rulings are made, in context of prevailing electoral law.
As you know, the electoral act has gone through different alterations, mostly in response to observed gaps or mischief of politicians.
