The trial of Mr James Gyakye Quayson -MP for Assin North Constituency

The trial of Mr James Gyakye Quayson, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin North Constituency, has been postponed until July 6, 2023, by the Accra High Court due to his oath-taking as an MP.

Justice Mary Maame Ekue Yanzuh notified the parties that she had received a letter from the Speaker of Parliament informing the court of the swearing-in of the MP-elect.

Due to his dual citizenship—he was a citizen of both Canada and Ghana when he submitted his nomination for the 2020 election—the Supreme Court had earlier declared Quayson’s election as the Member of Parliament for Assin North invalid.

Nevertheless, on June 27, 2023, he won re-election to the position of Member of Parliament for the Assin North Constituency.

Gyakye Quayson’s attorney, Mr Tsatsu Tsikata, claimed that his client was unable to attend court because of a national duty that involved being sworn in at Parliament House.

He added that the civil portion of the case was the subject of certain legal proceedings being filed at the Supreme Court, and he asked for an adjournment so that the proceedings could be finished.

Deputy Attorney-General Mr Alfred Tuah-Yeboah shared the parties’ positions and also acknowledged that the MP was currently working on a national project.

James Gyakye Quayson is accused of lying to a public official and perjury.
