The President’s nominee for the high office of Chief Justice is billed to face the Appointments Committee of Parliament today Monday, December, 23, 2019.
All things being equal, the NDC minority will participate in today’s vetting of the Chief Justice nominee after its earlier threats to boycott the process.
A Press statement signed by the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu following the agreed date said:”Ghanaians can expect us to discharge our constitutional duty diligently and thoroughly especially considering our high regard for the eminent office the nominee will be occupying as head of the judicial arm of government if approved.”
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo nominated Justice Anin-Yeboah on December 12, 2019 to the position of Chief Justice of the land subject to Parliamentary approval.
When approved, Justice Anin Yeboah will be the first male Chief Justice of the land to be appointed in 12 years.
He will take over from Justice Sophia Akuffo. He will be Ghana’s 26th Chief Justice since 1876.
