The Hohoe Parliament results have been injuncted by a High Court in Ho presided over by Justice George Buadi on Wednesday December 23.
This follows an ex-parte application filed by lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata on behalf of some individuals who hail from the SALL areas of Santrokofi, Akpafu, Likpe and Lolobi in the Guan District for being prevented from taking part in the December 7th parliamentary elections.
Counsels for the applicants argued that the prevention of the people of these four traditional areas from taking part in the Hohoe parliamentary election was a violation of their fundamental rights; thus prayed the court to restrict the EC from gazetting the Hohoe Parliamentary results while demanding action for the enforcement of their fundamental rights -specifically their right to vote.
The application also sought to restrain the Electoral Commission (EC) from presenting John Peter Amewu as the elected representative for the people of Hohoe whereas seeking to prevent him from presenting himself to be sworn into office as the Member of Parliament for the Hohoe constituency.
