The 2020 NDC parliamentary candidate for Assin North, Mr James Gyakye Quayson, has appealed the High Court ruling which annulled his election as Member of Parliament (MP).

Mr Quayson in an appeal filed on Monday, August 2, insisted that the Court erred in its ruling hence the appeal. He is also among other things asking the court to declare as void the July 28 ruling by the Cape Coast High Court.

Other reliefs that Mr Quayeson is seeking include;

1. A declaration that the judgment of the High Court, Cape Coast, Coram Kwasi Boakye Jj. dated 28th July 2021, is void for having been issued out of the jurisdiction.

2. An order setting aside the judgment of High Court, Cape Coast, Coram Kwasi Boakye J., dated 28th July 2021.

3. An order setting aside the award of costs against the appellant and in favour of the petitioner/respondent and the 2nd Respondent/Respondent

4. Costs in favour of the appellant.

5. Any further or other order(s) the Court may deem fit.

The court last Wednesday ruled that NDC MP for Assin North John Gyaki Quayson failed to renounce his Canadian citizenship before the elections as required by law.

The Court thus cancelled the said election, ordering a re-run of the poll in Assin North, and, consequently, prohibited James Quayson from holding himself out as Member of Parliament for the area.
