Dual citizenship: We remain unshaken; cooperation will suffer in Parliament – Minority

The Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisuz has said the minority caucus reject the ruling of the Cape Coast High Court cancelling the legitimacy of Assin North MP, James Gyekye Queyson, as legal legislature for the good people of Assin North Constituency.

He explained that Mr Quayson won the elections genuinely and do not bear dual citizenship as it’s been put out because Mr Quayson denounced his dual citizenship to Canada in February 2019, at least, before the elections.

Mr Haruna Iddrisu categorically stated that, the minority remain unshaken and of confident that, the Assin North seat is for the NDC and would remain theirs, as they challenge the ruling in Appeal Court since the Cape Coast High Court Judge Aired both in law and justice.

The minority leader, concluded by threatening that, danger begets our democracy with the development happening and that, cooperation would suffer as Parliament carries its mandates going forward.

Responding to concerns raised by Mr Haruna Iddrisu, the majority Chief Whip and MP for Nsawam Addoagyiri, Frank Annor Dompreh said, he was surprise to hear the minority leader making such comments because, the NPP side cautioned the NDC MPs ahead of consequences that awaits them by involving the Assin North MP in election of Speaker and the swearing in of MPs on 7 January this year.

Mr Annor Dompreh further advised the minority leader and his people to challenge the outcome of the Cape Coast High court ruling in Court if he has a challenge on the ruling on Assin North MP, Mr James Gyekye Quayson.
