The Honourable Member of Parliament for the Ningo Prampram constituency, Sam Nartey George, has secured a court injunction against the Electoral Commission over it’s decision to hold a training workshop at the City Escape Hotel located at Prampram.
According to him the decision by the Electoral Commissioner Jean Mensa, who is a lawyer by profession and her deputy Bossman Asare, who is a political science lecturer at the University of Ghana was most unfortunate as it is a flagrant disregard for law and order, and an abuse of legal reasoning.
“As a Member of Parliament for the area and a responsible citizen who respects the laws of the land, I felt obliged to seek legal representation to stop what amounts to an illegal action by a Constitutional body,” Sam George stated.
According to him, “I am committed to continue representing my people in the best way possible especially in these trying pandemic times. This is my modest contribution to ensuring the rule of law is respected and that we overcome the COVID-19 scourge.
“It is my hope that persons entrusted with public responsibility and who ought to act in the best interests of the citizenry are so minded,” he added.
