Tolon MP Faces Court Action over Alleged Conviction for Fraud in Australia
National Youth Organizer aspirant of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Brogya Genfi has filed a writ at the Supreme Court for the annulment of the election of New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Tolon, Habib Iddrisu.
The writ was filed on Monday, November 7.
The action is on grounds that the MP has been convicted for fraud and forgery in Australia contrary to Article 92(2)(c)(i) of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana, he said.
“Every effort by NPP to reduce the numbers of the NDC in Parliament will be met with far more potent counter-measures,” he said in a Facebook post after filing.
This comes at a time the NPP is also challenging some of the seats being occupied by the NDC in Parliament.
