Today, the Supreme Court will hear a case challenging the approval of new ministers.

The NDC lawmaker claims in his case against the Speaker of Parliament (the first defendant) and the Attorney General (the second defendant) that the President ought to have consulted the legislature before reassigning ministers whose appointments were revoked.

On February 14, 2024, President Akufo-Addo ordered a reorganization in which six ministers and ten deputy ministers were moved to different portfolios while 13 ministers and ten deputy ministers were removed from their positions.

The matter is set for hearing by the Apex Court today, Wednesday, March 27.

The reliefs requested by the South Dayi Member of Parliament are listed below.

“A declaration that a Minister of State shall be appointed by the President with the prior approval of Parliament under Article 78(1) of the 1992 Constitution,” and “a declaration that the office of a Minister of State or Deputy Minister shall become vacant under Article 81(a) of the 1992 Constitution if the President revokes, terminates, or relieves him of that portfolio.”
