Court places injunction on gazetting of Hohoe MP-elect Peter Amewu

An interim injunction seeking to restrain the Electoral Commission (EC) from gazetting John Peter Amewu as MP-elect for the Hohoe Constituency has been granted.

The Ho High Court presided over by Justice George Buadi made the decision after an ex parte application was argued by Tsastsu Tsikata on December 23, 2020.

The legal practitioner insisted that his clients were not given the opportunity to vote in the parliamentary election in the Hohoe constituency.

The complainants, by this development, have brought an action for enforcement of their fundamental human rights specifically their right to vote.

The Energy Minister polled 26,952 votes representing 54.7% of total votes at the close of parliamentary elections in the constituency while his close contender Prof. Margaret Kwaku from the NDC garnered 21,821 votes.
