Confirmed, NDC Files Appeal Against Cape Coast High Court Ruling

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) have filed an appeal against last Wednesday's ruling by the Cape Coast High Court that annulled the December 2020 Parliamentary elections results in the Assin North Constituency.

Lawyers of the NDC on Monday morning stormed the Cape Coast High Court to appeal the ruling that was delivered on Wednesday against the Assin North MP James Gyakye Quayson.

The ruling follows a case filed against the embattled Member of Parliament for holding dual Citizenship for both Ghana and Canada.

At its judgment on Wednesday, the Judge ruled that, it is clear the MP did not denounce his Canadian citizenship before filing his nominations to contest as a Parliamentary Candidate for the December 2020 Parliamentary elections.

In effect, the Court ruling means that, a fresh election be conducted in the Assin North Constituency to elect a new Member of Parliament.

Sone leading members of the NDC including the National Chairman and the Minority Leader described the ruling as unfortunate.

The Court will now have to hear the appeal filed by the NDC.
