A member of the Judicial Service Staff Association of Ghana (JUSAG) has hauled its President before an Accra High Court challenging his capacity as President of the Association.
The plaintiff, Michael Bismark Ansah, suing JUSAG and its president Mr. Alex Nartey wants the court to declare that upon the true and proper interpretation of the JUSAG Constitution and CBA, the position of Director and Deputy Director within the Judicial Service is not contemplated as one of the class of workers of JUSAG.
He wants the court to also declare that in view of the elevation of Mr. Nartey as Deputy Director of ADR, he ceases to be a full member of JUSAG and therefore not qualified to continue to hold office as President of the Association within the meaning of Article 6 of JUSAG Constitution.
An aside cost for legal fees, lawyers of the plaintiff wants an order of injunction restraining Mr. Nartey from taking part in the upcoming national elections scheduled for May 11 this year.
Meanwhile, a motion on notice for interlocutory injunction seeking to restrain Mr. Nartey from taking part in the impending national elections has been filed expected to be heard on May 3, 2018.
