Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram Samuel Nartey-George on Friday secured an injunction against Electoral Commission’s decision to hold a workshop at City Hotel in his constituency.

According to the lawmaker, it was unfortunate that the EC chairperson Jean Mensah who is a lawyer and her deputy, a political science lecturer at the university decided to flout the law.

“They are disregarding the law and abusing legal reasoning, and as a Member of Parliament for the area and a responsible citizen who respect the laws of the land, I felt obligated to seek legal representation to stop what amounts to an illegal action by a constitutional body”.

Mr. Nartey-George further noted that he is committed to continue representing his people in the best way possible especially in these period of pandemic.

And added that it was his modest contribution in ensuring the rule of law is respected and overcome the COVID-19 scourge.

“It is my hope that persons entrusted with public responsibility and who ought to act in the best interest of the citizenry are so minded, we need to remain citizens and not spectators”, he said in a statement.
