A Supreme Court nominee, Lawyer Gabriel Pwamang, is currently before the Appointments Committee of Parliament for questioning on legal and other matters that are of public interest.
Mr. Pwamang, a former General Secretary of the People’s National Convention (PNC) and an Appeals Court Judge, Justice Yaw Appau, were nominated to the Supreme Court by President John Mahama on May 12, 2015.
Their nomination was in accordance with the provisions of Article 144 (2) of the 1992 Constitution.
The said article stipulates that “The other Supreme Court Justices shall be appointed by the President acting on the advice of the Judicial Council, in consultation with the Council of State and with the approval of Parliament”.
Justice Appau was yesterday vetted by the committee chaired by the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Ebo Barton-Odro.
