A five-member panel of the Supreme Court has in a 3-2 majority decision dismissed an application for Stay of Proceedings from Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin North, James Gyakye Quayson.

The embattled MP wanted the Supreme Court to Stay proceedings at the Cape Coast Court of Appeal for referral of Article 94(2)(a) for Interpretation by the Supreme Court.

But, a day after he was ordered to file his response to an interlocutory injunction challenging to stop him from performing parliamentary duties, the MP application for Stay of Proceedings was dismissed.

With Justices Gabriel Pwamang and Agnes Dordzie dissenting,  three Justices Gertrude Torkornoo, Clemence Honyenuga and Yonni Kulendi dismissed the application.

Meanwhile, the panel of five unanimously dismissed his application for Certiorari.

According to EIB Network’s Court Correspondent Murtala Inusah, the MP will have to go back to the Cape Coast Court of Appeal and pursue his appeal regarding the High Court Judgement which declared his seat vacant.
