The Supreme Court of Ghana has dismissed injunction application against approval of ministerial nominees.

The apex Court said that the application filed by the Member of Parliament for South Dayi against Parliament’s approval of ministerial nominees by President Akufo-Addo was frivolous and an abuse of the court process.

The applicant, Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor, Member of Parliament for South Dayi, had sought to halt the vetting process in Parliament pending the determination of his suit challenging the constitutionality of the President’s decision to reassign Ministers without Parliament’s involvement.

However, the Supreme Court ruled that the MP’s case had no direct relevance to the nominees currently before Parliament, as it primarily concerns reassigned Ministers.
