Ningo Prampram Member of Parliament, Samuel Nartey George, has said the Chief Justice who was in the legislative house at the time of the election of a speaker for the 8th parliament to swear him in, ran away from the chamber into his car when the military entered the House during the chaos on the floor on January 7.
Sam George who condemned the military intervention explained on the Key Points programme on TV3 Saturday January 9 that as of the time the chaos was ongoing, there was no President and Vice President in the country because their tenure had expired.
He also said there was no speaker to step in, and so the only person who could act, per the constitution, as the leader of the country at that particular time until a speaker was elected to also swear in the president-elect, was the Chief Justice.
If any misfortune had happened to the Chief Justice at that short period, that could have amounted to an attack on the state, he explained.
