The Supreme Court has dismissed the application seeking to restrain Parliament from sitting on the controversial CI 78 which will create 45 new constituencies.
What it means is that the Court can now proceed to hear the substantive case brought before it by a businessman Ransford France.
The businessman is describing the EC’s creation of 45 new constituencies as illegal and wanted the court to rule on that.He was however praying the court will restrain Parliament from sitting on the CI 48 until the court has ruled.
But Joy News’ Sammy Darko who was in court, reported that lawyer Chris Ackumey early Wednesday morning filed a motion against the plaintiffs’ request for the injunction.
Presiding judge Justice Ansah who heard the arguments from both sides ruled in favour of the respondents.The substantive case can now be heard.
