The Supreme Court of Ghana passed its verdict on the E-levy case summoned to court by some Minority members of Parliament who subsequently sought to secure an interlocutory injunction on the implementation of the E-levy by the government.
The unanimous seven-zero verdict by the Supreme Court yesterday May 5, 2022, rendered the first section of the case, that is, seeking for an injunction to restrain the E-levy implementation futile whiles the substantive matter still pends final decision.
Former DCE for Sekyere Afram Plains and a member of the NDC, Hon. Fuseini Donkor has stated that, the Supreme Court verdict did not come as a surprise at all but rather something that was in expectation.
He said, recent rulings by the Supreme Court such as the case of deputy Speakers of Parliament’s voting right, and outcomes of cases involving the government can easily be predicted as the petitioner stands no chance of being ruled in favour.
