Assin North MP expected to make first appearance in injunction case

An interlocutory order brought by NPP’s Michael Ankomah-Nimfah to prevent James Gyakye Quayson from exercising his Parliamentary role is set to be heard by a seven-member Supreme Court bench.

In the same case, the Supreme Court will interpret Article 94(2)(c).

The registrar of the Court informed the court on Tuesday, February 1 that their attempt to serve the MP through Parliament had been unsuccessful.

In the instance of Matthew Antianye, the registrar, “the address of service was through the Clerk of Parliament for the first attempt, but the Clerk insisted it should be served on the Speaker.”

The service was attempted a second time through the Speaker’s office, but the secretary stated that the Speaker was out of Parliament and could not accept the processes.

The petitioner was ordered to assist the registrar in serving James Quayson, the first Defendant in the case, by a seven-member Supreme Court panel headed over by Justice Jones Dotse, while the case was adjourned sine die.

The second and third defendants are the Electoral Commission and the Attorney General.
