EC sued over Ayawaso West Wuogon by–election
A Ghanaian citizen, Bismark Aborbi-Ayitey, has filed a suit at the Supreme Court, challenging the Electoral Commission’s decision to hold the Ayawaso West-Wuogon by–election on January 31, 2018.
According to the plaintiff, per Article 112 (5) of the 1992 Constitution, a bye-election is supposed to be held 60 days after a seat is declared vacant.
It is his contention that following the death of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Parliament formally declared the seat vacant and informed the EC on November 26, 2018.
In view of this, his argument is that the bye election is, therefore, supposed to be held before or on January 26, 2019 and not on January 31.
The plaintiff is being represented by Dr Dominic Ayine, a former Attorney –General.
