A Cape Coast High Court has canceled the 2020 parliamentary elections in the Assin North constituency.
The Court presided over by Justice Kwasi Boakye, ordered for fresh elections to be conducted in the constituency.
The court has also restrained the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin North, Joe Gyaakye Quayson from holding himself as the Member of Parliament for the Assin North Constituency.
The ruling by the court comes on the back of the withdrawal of an application seeking to invoke the supervisory jurisdiction by his lawyers.
An earlier application from the MP of Assin North Constituency, James Gyakye Quayson at the Supreme Court to invoke the supervisory jurisdiction of the apex court to assume jurisdiction over the case of his dual citizenship at the Cape Coast High Court was denied.
But a five-member panel of the Supreme Court presided over by Justice Yaw Appau struck out the application from the Member of Parliament (MP) and awarded a cost of GHC5,000 against the MP in favour of the first Interested party ( Michael Ankomah Nimfah, the petitioner).
