Supreme Court to hear Gyakye Quayson’s review application on May 17

The Supreme Court of Ghana has deferred the Review and Appeal cases of Assin North Member of Parliament James Gyakye Quayson to May 17, 2022.

The Supreme Court was supposed to hear the cases on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, but it had to be postponed.

In July 2021, a Cape Coast high court upheld Michael Ankomah Nimfah’s suit to declare James Gyakye Quayson’s election as MP in the 2020 Parliamentary elections illegal, claiming that he owed loyalty to a country other than Ghana, in violation of Article 94(2) of the 1992 Constitution.

However, the Assin North MP petitioned the Court of Appeal to overturn the high court’s decision.

As a result of Mr Gyakye Quayson’s noncompliance with court processes, the Court of Appeal dismissed his appeal.

According to the court, the embattled MP did not file his written submission within the time frame set by the court.

Following the Court of Appeal’s decision to dismiss his case, James Gyakye Quayson then filed a review application with the Supreme Court.
