The panel, comprising a retired judge, two members of the clergy, a statistician and a renowned computer scientist, would sit today and tomorrow.

They are Professor VCRAC Crabbe, a former Electoral Commissioner and retired Supreme Court Judge, and Professor Emmanuel Kwaku Asante, Chairman of the National Peace Council.
