The New Patriotic Party’s Member of Parliament for Effutu Alex Afenyo-Markin has applauded President John Dramani Mahama’s lawyer Tony Lithur for his style of cross examining Dr. Bawumia over the evidence presented to the Supreme Court.

Mr. Afenyo-Markin said Tony Lithur performed creditably as a lawyer, in his three-day cross examination of the NPP’s key witness, Dr. Mahamudu Bawaumia at the ongoing hearing of the election petition by the Supreme Court.

Speaking on Adom TV’s Badwam Thursday, the MP also commended Dr. Bawumia for the responses he gave to the questions posed to him, adding, he exhibited his in-depth knowledge in politics.

He however said he will be greatly disappointed if the returning officer in the December 2012 presidential elections, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan, the man at the centre of the controversy, does not mount the witness.
