A former Minister of Health under the erstwhile NDC administration, Mr. Alex Segbefia has indicated that, the Assin North Parliamentary seat will still remain for the NDC despite a Court ruling to conduct fresh elections in the Constituency.
Speaking to JoyNews Court Correspondent in the Central Region, Mr. Segbefia also accused the Court registry of intentionally preventing the NDC legal team from filing a new writ at the Court this morning.
He explained that, the legal team of the NDC MP were in the Court arround 8am, but non of the workers were present to assist them do so.
He added that, whiles they were waiting for the registry to come and open for them to file an application, the Judge in the case went ahead to read his judgment on the matter.
Nonetheless, he was very confident that, the NDC will still win the Parliamentary seat.
The Cape Coast High Court this morning declared that, the NDC MP cannot hold himself as the MP for the Constituency as he was still holding Citizenship for both Ghana and Canada which is against the 1992 Constitution.
The Court has therefore declared the outcome of the December 2020 Parliamentary Elections in the Assin North Constituency as null and void.
