A seven-member panel of the Supreme Court has declared the March 3 district assembly elections unconstitutional.

A disqualified aspirant for the position of assemblyman in the Eyipeh Electoral Area in the Central Region.

Benjamin Eyi Mensah has dragged the Electoral Commission to Court for failing to include him in the upcoming election.

The judges unanimously ruled on Friday the Electoral Commission must reopen nominations after one Benjamin Eyi Mensah.

Lawyer for the plaintiff, Alexander Afenyo Markins has insisted that the EC’s decision to open and close nominations when the CI 85 had not been passed is unlawful.

He told the court presided over by 7 justices including William Atuguba, Baffoe Bonnie and Sophia Akuffo that the ongoing process is null and void.

On the first day, Mr Idun quoted CI 75 but was immediately reminded by the judges that, that constitutional instrument deals only with presidential and parliamentary elections.

His decision to rely on CI 68 did not help either as the court drew his attention to the fact that it deals with unit committee elections.
