The Supreme Court has by a majority decision restrained Member of Parliament for Assin North James Gyakye Quayson from performing his parliamentary duties.

The apex court in a 5-2 ruling said the application from Michael Ankomah Nimfah succeeds.

The seven-member panel of the Supreme Court held that the MP is retrained from holding himself out as an MP for the Assin North constituency.

While Justice Agnes Dordzie and Nene Amegatcher dissented, Jones Dotse, as Court President, Prof. Henrietta Mensah Bonsu, Mariama Owusu, Gertrude Torkornoo, and Emmanuel Yonny Kulendi granted the application.

EIB Network’s Court Correspondent Murtala Inusah reports that the full ruling would be ready by close of day.
