Bongo's victory by less than 6,000 votes has drawn unwelcome scrutiny on the president, whose family has ruled the oil-producing state in Central Africa for 49 years.
The court's nine judges are expected to rule by Friday on Ping's complaint and could announce a recount or final results.
Opposition members of the Central African oil producer's electoral commission rejected Saturday's first-past-the-post election result, which would see the Bongo family's nearly half-century in power extended another seven years.
Election results: "There will be trouble and Ali will tackle the problem with his men ... We're afraid of the spillover," said Jadi Mabende.
Gabon opposition candidate Jean Ping called on President Ali Bongo to "acknowledge his defeat" in Saturday's presidential election.
Gabon's opposition candidate, Jean Ping, is confident in winning the country's elections ahead of President Ali Bongo.
