Live broadcast of election petition case praised
President of the GJA, Roland Affail Monney
The President of the GJA, Roland Affail Monney says the live broadcast of the election petition challenging the results of the 2012 elections will create the platform for supporters of both parties in the case to be part of proceedings and also not accuse the judiciary of wrong judgement.
Mr Monney also cautioned the public and political figures not to blame the media for wrong reportage.
He described the proceedings as a landmark case which will define the future of the judicial system and the nation.
Meanwhile, a Legal Practitioner and a former lecturer at the Ghana School of Law, Ace Ankomah has described yesterday's hearing of the election petition case filed by three leading members of the NPP as historic and great achievement to Ghana as Court proceedings were broadcast live.
Speaking on Radio Ghana, Mr Ankomah said the live broadcast has further deepened Ghana's democracy since it will ensure transparency and public participation.
Mr Ankomah therefore appealed to authorities to televise other cases that are of public interest.
