The Supreme Court has ordered the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin North, James Gyakye Quayson, to stop holding himself as a Member of Parliament.
The apex court by 5-2 majority decision, further ordered him from appearing in Parliament as an MP or doing anything as an MP.
The order of the court will hold until the final determination of a suit challenging the constitutionality of Mr. Quayson’s election as MP.
The seven-member panel of the Supreme Court said the MP is restrained from holding himself out as an MP for the area.
While Justice Agnes Dordzie and Nene Amegatcher dissented, Jones Dotse, as Court President, Prof. Henrietta Mensah Bonsu, Mariama Owusu, Gertrude Torkornoo, and Emmanuel Yonny Kulendi granted the application.
