Armed security personnel stormed Ghana’s parliament to restore calm following chaotic scenes between members of the ruling party and the main opposition party.

The yesterday’s chaos followed a standoff over the election of a new speaker after new members of parliament had been sworn in.

The military and police were in the chambers for about 10 minutes before marching out.

Ghana’s parliament has no clear majority, with both the opposition and the ruling party having 137 MPs each, with one independent MP.

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) party has filed a petition at the Supreme Court seeking to annul President Nana Akufo Addo’s win in the December elections.

It wants the judges to order a re-run of the presidential election.
