Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu has justified the failure of Minority members to honour a court invitation procured by the Ghana Police Service.
Twenty Minority MPs including Haruna Iddrisu were summoned to court for breaching the Public Order Act 1994 (Act 491), Section 1(1) and (2) and 9(a) and were expected to appear before the Accra Circuit court today.
This follows their procession to the Electoral Commission’s Head Office in Accra on December 22, 2020 to hand over a petition stating their disagreement with the recently held general elections and demanding a re-collation of the 2020 Techiman South Constituency results.
They were to report to court on Monday, however, none of the summoned MPs showed up.
Addressing the media at Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu said neither he nor his compatriots have been served any writ of summons from the court and therefore, have no legal basis to appear before the court.
He stated the Ghana Police Service should have formally served them the writ of summons instead of posting it on social media.
