The hearing of the Petition seeking to impeach the JCR President and Electoral Commissioner of Commonwealth Hall might not see the light of the day following an application for Interlocutory by JCR President Kofi Adutwum.
The hearing was scheduled to take place at the Commonwealth Hall Central Court this evening.
The President in his statement of claim alleges that a petition for his removal per the constitution ought to be signed by 21 persons but the document served on him has 20 signatories.
Kofi Adutwum further describes the said petition as “vexatious”, “frivolous” “and lacks merit and an abuse of court process”
He therefore prays that the petition is struck out for the failure to meet the stipulated requirements and failure to disclose any reasonable grounds for removal from office.
The Electoral Commissioner, Hammond Tanoh, whose impeachment hearing was to come off, also offers an affidavit in support of the application for interlocutory injunction.
