The Director of Elections for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Evans Nimako, is demanding the arrest of the Member of Parliament-Elect for Assin North, James Gyakye Quayson.
The NPP wrote a letter to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs seeking an inquiry into the citizenship status of the MP-Elect.
The NDC had said the MP-elect is “a full citizen of Ghana who owes no allegiance whatsoever to any other country. He is a Ghanaian in law and in fact and qualifies to be a Member of Parliament according to the laws of Ghana.”
It said James Gyakye Quayson duly qualifies for his parliamentary seat since he renounced his citizenship of Canada long ago.
The country’s constitution frowns upon any instance of an elected Member of Parliament being a citizen of another country in addition to being a Ghanaian.
The NPP’s claim, if found to be true constitutes grounds for the said MP-elect to be removed.
