Attorney General concedes to Tsatsu’s review application; Court sets March 30 for verdict

The Supreme Court has booked March 30, 2021, to convey its decision on the audit application recorded by legal counselors for individuals of SALL following the summit court's choice to suppress a prior administering by the Ho High Court on the appointment of John Peter Amewu as MP-choose. 

Tsatsu Tsikata, lead Counsel for the candidates contended on March 17, 2021 that the peak court blundered when it alluded to one side to cast a ballot as an arrangement falling inside the Directive Principles of State Policy under the Constitution as opposed to being among the essential common liberties. 

He added that the Supreme Court failed in asserting that the High Court, Ho would need to decide if the option to cast a ballot is a basic liberty or not since this was something that has been settled by a long queue of choices of the Supreme Court which are restricting on all courts, including the Supreme Court itself. 

He was more worried that understudies of sacred law ought not need to think about these wrong articulations as lawfully right. 

The agent of the Attorney General, Chief State Attorney, Ms Grace Ewoal, surrendered to the principal ground of the application for survey contended by Mr Tsatsu Tsikata yet went against conceding the offended parties the audit looked for. 

She asked that the application be excused on the grounds that there was no new data put together by counsel for the candidates that legitimacy conceding the survey. 

Mr Tsikata in a reply expressed that since the Attorney General surrendered to Ground (a) alone is reason enough for the application for survey to be conceded yet Justice Kulendi requested that Mr Tsikata leave that to the court to choose. 

Different reason for survey raised by counsel for candidates were protested by the Chief State Attorney. 

On 5thJanuary 2021, the Supreme Court suppressed a decision by the Ho High Court requesting John Peter Amewu from holding himself as the MP-choose for the Hohoe voting demographic after a suit recorded by teacher Margaret Kweku and four others contending that the choice to disappoint individuals of SALL is a basic liberty infringement. 

However, an application recorded by the Attorney General at the Supreme Court prompted the suppress of the sets of the Ho High Court made on 23rdDecember 2020. 

After the consultation on Wednesday, March 17, 2021, one of the applicants, Professor Margaret Kweku, the NDC's 2020 parliamentary possibility for Hohoe said "It was critical that the Attorney-General yielded our first ground of the audit application''. 

The NDC in the Volta area concurs with the advice for the candidates saying "As our Counsel said toward the end, that is an adequate reason for the audit to be conceded. We anticipate the choice of the Supreme Court and to the further becoming aware of the case in the High Court, Ho to guarantee authorization of the crucial basic freedoms of individuals of the SALL conventional zones, including the option to cast a ballot and the option to be addressed in the eighth Parliament of the Fourth Republic of Ghana".
