Wrong parking is a misdemeanor and not a crime. The price is determined by the court. A police officer cannot determine the decision of the court or a judge on the matter. One must comply with the law and principles of arrest and proceed to the station if the officers prove the location is not a parking zone. One must also record the encouter.

It is within the law to record a video or capture photos of your encounter with a traffic police officer.However, such recording must be done taking into account the rules on privacy which every individual is guaranteed under the 1992 constitution. The overriding point is that any secret recording can only be justified in law if it is for the protection of health or morals; for the prevention of disorder or crime; or for the protection of the rights or freedoms of others.

Question: Are there time limits applying to various claims when it comes to filing a lawsuit in courts?

Answer :

Under the Limitation Act of 1972, time limits for initiating actions are a substantive law that offers a full defense to a claim mounted.

In accordance with the Act (Limitation Act of 1972):

• Slander, seduction, and the recovery of a penalty or forfeiture under a legislation are all actions that are barred after two years.

• Tort actions are forbidden after three years.

• Intentional and strict responsibility torts, contractual claims, ex*****on of arbitral judgements, and rent recovery are all proceedings that are barred after six years.

• Land, mortgage backed securities enforcement, enforcement of an arbitral award under seal, reclamation of tax and associated concerns by way of a statute, enforcement of a judgment, and estate matters are actions barred after 12 years.

The statute of limitations applies the instant the cause of action arises.

*CAN A DEPUTY SPEAKER OVERTURN A DECISION OF THE SUBSTANTIVE SPEAKER ON GROUNDS OF ALLEGED ILLEGALITY?*

By: *Arnold Armah, Esq.*

As our MPs return to the floor of Parliament for another dose of suspense and drama on the 2022 budget policy and principles rejection or otherwise on Friday 26 November 2021, I explore prophecies of what Parliament will do and nothing pretentious.

A glaring act of illegality and in this case unconstitutionality logically can be pronounced by anyone. Except merely saying it does give it any legal effect or enforcement unless it is pronounced upon by a competent court of jurisdiction seized with that matter and ruling delivered per law. The second remedy is when that institution or person alleged to have committed such unconstitutionality in and by itself remedies such occurrence.

It is often said parliament is a master of its own rules and what happens inside the chamber is “a closed book”. The Supreme Court (SC) in Ghana in the case of Tuffour v Attorney-General [1980 GLR] 637 held that; "The courts can call in question a decision of Parliament, but the courts cannot seek to extend their writs into what happens in Parliament; and that the law and custom of Parliament is a distinct body of law and, as constitutional experts do put it “unknown to the courts”.

The Standing Orders of Parliament, which is the rule book that guides proceedings in Parliament makes provision for how Parliament may or can correct any illegality or act of unconstitutionality committed by itself.

Order 96 specifically makes provision for how to challenge a ruling by the Speaker. It provides that a member may challenge the ruling of the speaker ONLY by a substantive motion; “Mr Speaker shall be responsible for the observance of order in the House and of the rules of debate, and his decision upon any point of order shall not be open to appeal and shall not be reviewed by the House, except upon a SUBSTANTIVE MOTION MADE AFTER NOTICE”. {emphasis is mine}

From the above, two options or even three depending on how you look at it may be available to the NPP majority Caucus today. The first one is to go by way of the Court to quash the decision of the house on grounds of the complained unconstitutionality.
The second is to move a substantive motion in the house today challenging the ruling by the speaker on the rejection of the budget on Friday. And maybe the third, the most unpopular option judging by the posture of the NPP is to submit a new budget to the house.

The problem the majority caucus faces today is pretty not nice: The substantive Speaker is out of the country, which means either the first or deputy speaker depending on whose is available will preside over sitting’s today. The two deputy speakers all aligned with the Majority Caucus. The NPP has 137 seats with 1 independent member who does business with the NPP bringing their numbers to 138. The Minority Caucus has 137 numbers.This means, should one of the deputy speakers preside over sittings today, it will leave the majority caucus with 137 numbers, an equal number as that of the minority caucus- any thee figures stand so long as all the parties marshal all their numbers.

Order 108 rule 3 provides that a deputy speaker presiding shall not have a casting vote; “3) A Deputy Speaker or any other member presiding shall not retain his original vote while presiding”. Order 108 (2) also provides that when votes are equally divided the motion shall be taken to be lost.Like we say in economic-this is when all other matters remain the same. i.e., when every party presents all of its members today. Someone hinted, what happens if say the Police arrest the NDC MP for Madina who a bench warrant has been issued for his arrest. Let’s assume that happens, all the minority would have to do is to walk out of the chamber. Should that happen, the majority caucus would be left with 137 minus the one presiding. The whole reason we are about unconstitutionality is that Order 108 provides that no decision of the House shall be determined unless one-half of all the Members of the House are present. Half of a 275-member chamber is 137.5. Since we do not have half-human beings, the reasonable thing to do is to approximate it to the nearest number which will be 138. With the NPP numbers being 137 because one of them would have to preside as Speaker, they will end up committing the same unconstitutionality that they are accusing the Speaker and the Minority Caucus of committing on Friday.

This is the whole gospel- the gospel according to politics and law.

That will be all.
