The First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei-Owusu referred the appointment of the 3 Justices to the Appointments Commitment of the House for consideration and report. The last time new appointments were made to the Supreme Court bench was in July 2022.
At the time, the list comprised of three justices of the Court of Appeal and a Justice of the High Court. The nominees from the Court of Appeal were Justice Barbara Frances Ackah-Yensu, Justice George Kingsley Koomson, and Justice Samuel Kwame Adibu Asiedu. Justice Ernest Yao Gaewu was the only nominee from the High Court.
