The Supreme Court will today rule on whether or not Parliament should be stopped from passing the controversial Constitutional Instrument (CI) 78 seeking to re-demarcate some constituencies in Ghana.
The highest court of the land last Wednesday, September 12, 2012 adjourned the interim injunction application filed to restrain Parliament from sitting on the CI 78 seeking to add 45 more constituencies to the already existing 230.
A Ghanaian, Ransford France sued the Electoral Commission and the Attorney General over the consideration of Constitutional Instrument 78 seeking to create 45 new constituencies.
However after submissions from lawyers of the three parties including lawyer for plaintiff Joe Ghartey, the Judge, Justice Charles Quist adjourned the ruling to today.
Also sued alongside the EC was the Attorney-General and Minister for Justice.
According to Mr France, due process was not followed in the creation of the new constituencies.
The EC's move to create the 45 new constituencies has received stiff opposition from the Minority in Parliament, the Trades Union Congress (TUC), former President J. A. Kufuor, a former Minister of Finance and Economic Planning, Mr Yaw Osafo-Maafo, and several Ghanaians, some of whom have filed various suits challenging the creation of the new constituencies.
