GLC petitioned to probe Ayine over comments on 2020 election petition

The Judicial Secretary has filed a petition at the Disciplinary Committee of the General Legal Council against Bolgatanga East MP Dominic Ayine over some comments he allegedly made about the 2020 election petition during an academic discussion.

The lawmaker is reported to have said the Supreme Court failed to apply the rules of procedure during the trial. He is also believed to have raised concerns over the regular dismissal of the petitioners’ applications during the case.

Mr Ayine is reported to have made the comments at an event organised by the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD) and the KNUST.

The petition urged the GLC to probe the lawmaker and apply the necessary sanctions.

Below is the Petition from the CJ:
