Watch the vetting proceedings of Chief Justice nominee Justice Anin Yeboah

Members of Parliament’s Appointment’s Committee are currently vetting the President’s nominee for the high office of Chief Justice.

Justice Kwesi Anin Yeboah was initially supposed to appear before the committee on Saturday, December 21, 2019, but it was rescheduled to today following some concerns raised by the minority on the vetting.

The Minority side was not happy with the leadership of the Committee’s decision to give the public just one week to submit memoranda on the nominee before the public hearing instead of the two weeks usually given.

They accused their colleagues from the Majority side of rushing with the public hearing of the Chief Justice nominee, Justice Kwesi Anin-Yeboah.

They claimed that whilst discussion was ongoing on the issue of the abridgment of time, the Chairman of the Appointments Committee unilaterally caused public announcement of the proposed date of vetting without regard to the ongoing process of dialogue on the abridgment.

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.
