The Attorney General has filed an application to invoke the supervisory jurisdiction of the Supreme Court for an order of certiorari directed at the High Court, Ho, Volta Region, for the Supreme Court to quash the orders of the High Court, Ho, given 23rd December, placing an injunction against the Hohoe MP-elect taking his seat.
According to Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, the president’s nephew, the AG is also seeking an order to prohibit the High Court of Justice George Boadi, from further hearing or conducting proceedings in the said suit.
In a post by Gabby on his social media platforms, the AG contends that the High Court has no jurisdiction under Article 33 of the Constitution to entertain a matter in the nature of a parliamentary election petition and to grant any relief(s), interim, interlocutors, or final, available in a parliamentary election commenced under Article 99 and Section 16 of PNDCL 284, Representation of the People’s Law.
The AG, therefore, sees the proceedings of Justice George Boadi’s court of 23rd December as void because it violated the Constitution.
