Court throws out parliamentary election petition against Jomoro MP

The election petition that was filed by Joshua Emuah Kofie challenging the nationality of the Member of Parliament for Jomoro, Dorcas Toffey has been dismissed by the Sekondi high court.

The court presided over by Justice Dr. Richmond Osei Hwere declared the MP eligible on grounds that she lost her Ivorian citizenship at the very time she acquired her Ghanaian Citizenship.

The applicant had alleged that the MP held multiple nationalities, including American and Ivorian citizenships, and therefore was ineligible to contest and be elected MP.

The lawmaker denied having American and Ivorian citizenships.

Present at the Court were her lawyers Edudzi Tamakloe, James Agalga, Marrieta Brew Oppong, a former Attorney General, Former National Security Minister, Kofi Totobi Quakye, MP for Ellembelle, Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah, Embattled Assin North MP, James Gyekye Quayson and Western regional NDC Executives.
