Supreme Court adjourns hearing of 2012 Presidential election petition
The case involving the NDC, NPP and the Electoral Commission over last Decembers Presidential elections has been adjourned to Wednesday.

The petitioners and the respondents were divided in the Presidential election petition over whether the hearing will commence today or not.

Lead Counsel for the NPP, Philip Addison argued that they have not been served with a petition from the EC but NDC's Tsatsu Tsikata said the fact that the EC has not filed its affidavit does not prevent the case from commencing.

Meanwhile, Radio Ghana’s correspondent reports that the pavements in front of the Supreme Court were blocked with heavy Police presence to prevent any eventuality.

Hawkers around the premises were also allowed.

He adds that surprisingly the hundreds of party supporters that thronged the Supreme Court when the petition was filed were conspicuously absent today.

No party supporter or even party paraphernalia could be spotted around the Court premises.

Police vehicles were parked on the shoulders of the pavements of the roads making it impossible for anyone to have space to stand.

The main entrance to the Supreme Court was heavily manned by Armed Police personnel.
