Vote in favor of Speaker and bear the outcomes – Clerk to Assin North MP choose

The Clerk of Parliament has told the injuncted Assin North MP-choose that he could choose to participate in the continuous democratic to choose a Speaker of the eighth Parliament and bear the outcomes or quit.

It comes after extended periods of time of impasse among NDC and NPP MPs over the lawfulness or in any case of James Gyekye Quayson to be important for the activity.

“I have addressed the MP-choose and I have properly educated the two chiefs. He can choose to cast a ballot and bear the outcomes there,” he said.

Subtleties on Chaos

Disarray emitted in Parliament over the court order coordinated at the MP-choose for Assin North James Gyekye Quayson.

The two sides of the House have been in extended verbal trades over the lawfulness or in any case for the MP-choose to participate in the appointment of a Speaker for the eighth Parliament.

While the NDC MPs demand that the gathering was not appropriately served on the representative of Parliament who is leading the sitting, the NPP MPs contend the MP-choose can't be permitted to cast a ballot since the court order bars him.


The Cape Coast High Court has conceded an order against the Member of Parliament for Assin North James Gyekye Quayson controlling him from holding himself as NDC MP-choose for the supporters over double citizenship.

This follows an appeal against the MP-choose by one Michael Ankoma-Nimfah, a bricklayer and occupant of Assin Bereku.

Giving his decision on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, the directing adjudicator, Justice Kwasi Boakye said Mr. Quayson was “limited from holding himself out as Member of Parliament-choose for the Assin North electorate inside the Central Region of the Republic of Ghana and further introducing himself to be confirmed as Member of Parliament-choose as such until the last assurance of the appeal.”

Mr Quayson had excused the case when it was before raised by the New Patriotic Party.

The NDC in an assertion following the claim said MP-choose upon a request introduced to the Electoral Commission was welcomed where he protected himself by giving the required reports to demonstrate that he has revoked his Canadian Citizenship.

In any case, the complainant said the MP-choose still hung on the Canadian citizenship when he was recording to challenge in the December surveys.
