LGBTQ+ BilI will be challenged at SC after passage- Dr. Wereko-Brobbey
Former CEO of Volta River Authority Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobbey has predicted that the LGBTQ+ Bill currently before parliament will be challenged at the Supreme Court of Ghana if it is passed into law.
The LGBTQ+ Bill is set to be laid before parliament on Monday 2 August 2021.
But, even before the bill laid in the floor of parliament, Dr. Wereko-Brobbey said the law will be challenged at the Supreme Court if the bill in its current form is passed into law.
“I know that this bill will be challenged at the Supreme Court after passage and judges will have opportunity to interpret whether it’s consistent with our laws. That’s will come because I think section 104 is inconsistent with the constitution “.
Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin has warned critics to stop threatening MPs who introduced the bill and promised that it will be passed into law by the end of 2021.
But, Dr. Wereko-Brobbey is of the view that the Speaker erred in taking a categorical position on the bill before it is laid.
“The Speaker is supposed to be neutral on all matters”.
