Assin North: NDC will appeal the flawed judgement ASAP – Sammy Gyamfi

Must read

The NDC says its always will apply a Stay of Execution in the Cape Coast High Court judgment that nullifies the election of the Assin North MP, James Gyakye Quayson.

The National Communications Officer for the party, Sammy Gyamfi in a Facebook post said although the party is ready for a by-election, they will insist on justice to be served in the matter.

”Let me put on record that the NDC is not afraid of any by-election. We are confident of victory in any by-election if we get to that stage. All we want is for justice to be done. And we will stop at nothing to ensure that justice is done.

”Our lawyers will apply for a Stay of Execution of the orders of the trial judge and Appeal the flawed judgement ASAP. This travesty of justice will not be allowed to stand.

”The NDC is also determined to formally petition the Judicial Service for disciplinary action to be taken against the Registrar and other Judicial Officers of the Cape Coast High Court who engaged in those shameful gymnastic earlier this morning. Such partisan and unscrupulous persons are not fit to serve in the respectable independent arm of government,”Sammy Gyamfi wrote in a statement after the judgment.

The Cape Coast High Court yesterday ruled that the lawmaker was not eligible to contest the seat.

Petitioner, Michael Ankomah Nimfah, contended that Quayson held dual citizenship as a Ghanain and a Canadian at the time of his election, and therefore must be restrained from performing the duties of a Member of Parliament.
