Former President John Mahama has expressed his reservations over the Supreme Court ruling which stops Assin North MP Gyakye Quayson.
The Apex court in a 5-2 ruling Wednesday granted the application by plaintiff Michael Ankomah Nimfah.
In a post on Facebook, Mr Mahama said “I cannot understand how an MP can be restrained from carrying out his duties when the substantive case to give finality to the question of his legitimacy has not been determined.
“Or is it the case that the outcome of the substantive case has been predetermined against him? The representation of the people is at the heart of our democracy. Any decision that denies the citizenry of representation is a travesty of justice and an affront to our democracy.
Meanwhile, lawyer for the petitioner in the case Frank Davis, says the Supreme Court could not have allowed the MP to breach the Constitution.
Speaking to the Media after the Supreme Court ruling on Wednesday, April 13, 2022, Mr. Davis indicated that Mr. Quayson was engaged in an illegality by carrying himself as MP.
