BY: Emmanuel Ebo Hawkson

The Supreme Court has struck out an application by Former President John Dramani Mahama for the court to telecast the election petition live.

A seven-member panel of the court held that the court had already decided to telecast the petition live and therefore the request by the former President was “moot”.

As at the time lawyer for the Former President, Tsatsu Tsikata, raised to make the application, there were crew from Ghana Television already telecasting the petition live.
