Watch Live: Supreme Court's first hearing of election petition

The Supreme Court has begun hearing of the election petition brought before it by the flag bearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party, challenging the outcome of the December 2012 polls.

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is seeking to overturn the declaration of President John Mahama as winner of the said elections, citing widespread irregularities during the conduct of the polls.

Jointly with his running mate Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and party Chairman Jake Obetsebi Lamptey, the flag bearer has requested the court to annul 4,670,504 of the valid votes cast during the election at 11,916 polling stations where the alleged irregularities took place.

Watch live, the first sitting on the case at the Chief Justice’s courtroom at the Supreme Court of Ghana.
