Nine Member Supreme Court Panel To Hear Arguments Of Petitioners And Respondents In 2012 Election Petition
Counsel for the petitioners and respondents say they are ready to give their oral addresses today as the Supreme Court resumes sitting on the 2012 election petition.
The oral address will offer Counsel the opportunity to make clarifications and necessary additions to their written addresses which they had earlier filed with the Court.
Each of the parties will have to make their uninterrupted submissions in 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, the National Media Commission, NMC, has cautioned Media Houses not to allow their platform to be used to cause mayhem.
Its Executive Secretary, George Sarpong told Radio Ghana that the growing public anxiety about how panelists and serial callers used inflammatory language on the airwaves has necessitated the move.
In a related development, a leading member of the CPP, Professor Agyemang Badu Akosa has lauded the NMC for such a move saying it is long overdue.
According to him, this is not what pertains in developed democracies.
