Assin North MP Spotted In Parliament Despite Court Injunction

The Member of Parliament-elect for the Assin North constituency in the Central Region, James Gyakye Quayson, has been spotted seated in the chamber of parliament ahead of the dissolution of the 7th parliament and the inauguration of the 8th parliament.

A Cape Coast High Court on Wednesday January 6 ruled that he cannot hold himself as the Member of Parliament-elect for the constituency.

This followed a legal suit against him for allegedly holding a Canadian citizenship in addition to his Ghanaian citizenship as at the time he filed his nomination to contest for the parliamentary election, a situation which violates Article 94 (2)(a) of the Constitution of Ghana, 1992.
