Two members of the Ghana Institute of Journalism’s General Assembly have taken action against the Speaker of the House over a decision she made at a recent meeting.

The two, Theodore Abiwu and Philip Sarbah, are saying that the Speaker, Sandra Emefa Dziwornu, although members voted against the constitution of a new General Assembly, the Speaker used ‘discretionary powers’ against the will of those present.


They have described her actions as one that “amounts to self-serving and projecting one’s proclivities”

In a petition to the SRC Judicial Committee, they are, among other things, requesting for “a restraining order and a perpetual injunction on the General Assembly.”

They have also referred the Judicial Committee to a similar occurrence in March 2017.

“Your ladyship, an incident of this kind occurred in March 2017 with the Speaker of the General Assembly taking the same route as this current Speaker has done.

The title of the case was Ashraf Youni; Speaker of General Assembly Versus Kabu Nartey, Kwasi Nimo and Zak Paul Musbau (Honorable members).

The ruling of the Judicial Committee headed by His Lordship Prosper Kofi Senyo who held the view that the decision of the Speaker was contrary to the transparency that democracy seeks to project.

It therefore directed that the General Assembly reconvened to consider head count as a voting method in order to bring finality to the matter,” a part of the Writ of Summon reads.

The petitioners have also appealed for a date to be set soonest for the hearing of the matter.

Meanwhile, the General Assembly has announced that it will be sitting tomorrow.
