Supreme Court dismisses injunction against Parliament’s ministerial vetting

The Supreme Court has dismissed an application for an interlocutory injunction seeking to prevent Parliament from proceeding with the vetting of new Ministers nominated by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

In a unanimous decision today, a five-member panel of the court held that the application was frivolous and an abuse of the court process.

The applicant, Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor, Member of Parliament for South Dayi, had sought to halt the vetting process in Parliament pending the determination of his suit challenging the constitutionality of the President’s decision to reassign Ministers without Parliament’s involvement.

However, the Supreme Court ruled that the MP’s case had no direct relevance to the nominees currently before Parliament, as it primarily concerns reassigned Ministers.
