Minority suspends protest as court adjourns ruling on preliminary objection

- Advertisement -

The Minority in Parliament has temporarily suspended its planned “occupy BOG” protest on Tuesday, September 5, to amplify their calls for the resignation of the Governor, Dr. Ernest Addison, and his two deputies.

This decision was triggered by the court’s decision to rule on a preliminary objection raised by the minority’s lawyer on September 8 over an injunction application by the police to halt the protest due to security concerns.

The NDC’s Director of Legal Affairs, Godwin Edudzi Tamakloe, led the minority in objecting to the police’s right to take the action on their own.

He asserted that the State Proceedings Act and Article 88(5) of the 1992 Constitution both specify that only the Attorney General may bring immediate action.

The Minority Leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, assured their supporters after the court proceedings that the protest would be held after the court’s ruling is delivered.

The police argued that “Following a security assessment conducted by the police regarding the selected route for the demonstration by the minority in Parliament,it is observed that public order, public safety, and the provision of essential services may be endangered if the proposed route is followed.
