The Ho High Court, on 23rd December, 2020, has granted an interim injunction restraining the Electoral Commission of Ghana from Gazetting John-Peter Amewu as the Member of Parliament elect for Hohoe Constituency.
The Ho High Court presided over by Justice George Buadi granted interim injunction after an ex parte application was argued in court by on of the National Democratic Congress’s legal team members Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata for the applicants who hail from the towns and were prevented from voting in the parliamentary elections in the Hohoe constituency.
The Ho High Court is expected to be moved on Monday, 11th January, 2021 at 9 O’ clock in the forenoon or soon thereafter as councel for and on behalf of the applicant may be heard.
But, following a case filed by the State’s Attorney General Madam Gloria Akufo, challenging the Ho High Court’s injunction, restraining John-Peter Amewu from being sworn in as MP for Hohoe Constituency on 7th December, 2021, the Apex Court under the supervision of Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah has set 4th January, 2021 to officially hear arguments on the cases for further determination.
