February 18, 2018

The Supreme Court today issued an injunction suspending the implementation of points one and four of the Supreme Court Order issued on 1 February 2018. This suspends the decision by the Supreme Court reinstating the 12 Members of Parliament disqualified from their seats as a result of floor crossing. The injunction was granted in response to a case submitted by the Attorney General challenging the constitutionality of points one and four of the Supreme Court Order of 1 February 2018.

Therefore, the 12 Members of Parliament who lost their seats, as a result of floor crossing, will not regain their Parliamentary positions until the Supreme Court has been able to determine the case submitted by the Attorney General.
