Former President John Mahama has described Supreme Court’s ruling that barred the Assin North MP, Gyakye Qayson, from performing parliamentary duties as a misrepresentation of justice.
The 2020 NDC flagbearer, in a Facebook post on Thursday, said the apex court’s ruling is a deliberate display of disrespect to the country’s democracy.
“The representation of the people is at the heart of our democracy. Therefore, any decision that denies the citizenry of representation is a travesty of justice and an affront to our democracy,” Mr Mahama said.
In a majority 5-2 decision on Wednesday, April 13, the Supreme Court ruled that Mr Gyakye Quayson can no longer perform parliamentary duties.
This is until the determination of the substantive case filed against him at the Supreme Court.
In earlier reports, Private Legal Practitioner, Godwin Edudzi Tamakloe has said the injunction of embattled Member of Parliament for Assin North, Gyakye Quayson, has created a constitutional “crisis”.
According to him, the decision to injunct the legislator was not sound and creates a vacuum where ordinarily there should be none.
