The National Democratic Congress (NDC) legal Team for the deposed Assin North Member of Parliament (MP), James Gyakye Quayson’s says they vehemently disagree with the ruling by the Supreme Court restraining Mr. Quayson from holding him as MP for the area.
Speaking to the media after the Supreme Court ruling on Wednesday, April 13, 2022, a member of the NDC legal team, Baba Jamal described the ruling as sad development for the constituents.
According to him, the ruling means the people of Assin North will be deprived of an MP for some period of time.
“The Supreme Court has given its ruling, but we vehemently disagree with their position. It is a sad day for all of us. What it means is that Assin North is also not going to have representation in Parliament for as long as this case lasts. That is a sad situation,” he stated.
Mr. Jamal further disclosed that “There are precedents in this country. We all remember the case in Ayawaso West Wuogon where the lady was allowed to be in Parliament until the final determination of the case. So we thought that the Supreme Court would consider that situation and allow the representation to continue. But our legal team will meet and officially know the next step to take.”
