Judges should treat Honourable Quayson fairly.

Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata, the legal counsel for embattled Assin North MP Honourable Quayson Gyakye James, has stated that the judges hearing the case should not deny the people of his constituency a candidate because this will slow down the process.

Tsatsu Tsikata, a lawyer, and Justin Teriwajah, a follow counsel, have stated that no amount of judicial maneuvering can take away people's rights. Mr Quayson won by a majority vote of 54.19 votes cast, according to the able counsels, and there should never be a reason to deny him and his constituents that opportunity.

Those statements were made in court documents by these astute lawyers.

The court is expected to issue its decision on April 13th, 2022.

Michael Ankomah, an Assin North native, filed the lawsuit, requesting that Honourable Quayson be removed from his legislative duties.

Mr. Quayson's electoral victory was declared null and void by a Central Region Court in July 2021, on the grounds that he had pledged allegiance to Canada prior to filing nominations to become an MP.

Mr. Ankomah persisted in his efforts and asked the court to suspend Honourable Quayson so that he would not break any of the laws enshrined in the country's constitution.

However, attorneys for the challenging Honorable spoke out strongly against the allegations, claiming that their client had renounced his allegiance before running for office and that the electoral commission had also given him the opportunity to run.

The elections were declared null and void by a court in Cape Coast.

However, the legal team believes that the Supreme Court could have explained certain aspects of the law better than the High Court.

The attempt to tilt justice, according to Mr. Quayson's lawyers, is uncalled for.
