Supreme Court Rejects Injunction Against Parliament’s Ministerial Vetting

The Supreme Court has dismissed a request for an interlocutory injunction aimed at halting Parliament’s vetting of new Ministers selected by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

In a unanimous decision, a five-member panel of the court ruled today that the application was without merit and an abuse of the judicial process.

The applicant, Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor, Member of Parliament for South Dayi, had sought to stop the vetting process in Parliament until his lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the President’s decision to reassign Ministers without Parliament’s involvement was resolved.

However, the Supreme Court determined that the MP’s case was not directly relevant to the nominees currently undergoing vetting in Parliament, as it primarily concerned Ministers who had been reassigned.

The court’s decision allows Parliament to continue with the vetting process for the new Ministerial nominees without interruption.
