Supreme Court Suspends Gyakye Quayson’s Case To May 17
The Supreme Court has suspended James Gyakye Quayson’s application to next week Tuesday, May 17, 2022, for the Court to reconsider the opinion pattern of his restriction from working as a Member of Parliament.
The court, in a 5-2 majority ruling last month, ceases Mr. Quayson from holding himself out as the Member of Parliament for Assin North saying it had a duty to protect the sanctity of the constitution.
The opinion divides public opinion with inappropriate views inquiring about the apex court’s position on the right of the Assin North people to representation while others insist that the Supreme Court is not the appropriate platform for the order.
Although no reasons were attributed for the suspension, the court registry announced to the waiting courtroom that May 17 was the new date for the hearing.
The suspended Assin North MP applied for a review of the Supreme Court’s judgment preventing him from holding himself as a Member of Parliament or performing any parliamentary assignment.
The intellectual legislator through his lawyers on Tuesday, April 26, 2022, applied, arguing, among other things, that the court’s April 13, 2022 decision “was in the decree and fundamental mistake and violated article 129(3) of the Constitution.”
He said the decision of the court failed to acknowledge that, the suit was in reality attempt to enforce the decision of the High Court altered as a call of the original authority of the Supreme Court.
He added, “The majority opinion was in the decree and fundamental mistake in assent an order of interlocutory injunction awaiting the measurement of the suit when what the Applicant was seeking by this application was for the execution of opinions in the courts below and this mistake cause a gross miscarriage of justice against the 1st defendant or respondent.”
