The Supreme Court has upheld an application from Dr Zanetor Rawlings questioning the capacity of an Accra High Court to hear suit where her eligibility as the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) Parliamentary nominee for the Klottey Korle Constituency is being challenged by the incumbent MP, Nii Armah Ashitey.

According to the ruling, which was a four to one decision, the trial judge at the High Court erred in deciding on the case, a matter of constitutional interpretation, which is solely the mandate of the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court has therefore ordered for a stay of proceedings at the High Court and also indicated that it will carry out its duties by interpreting the said constitutional provision, citifmonline reported.
