Flagbearer hopeful for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. Kwabena Duffuor has dropped his legal action against the National Democratic Congress (NDC), making room for the party to hold its parliamentary and presidential primaries.
On Tuesday, Dr. Duffuor filed an injunction in court, alleging discrepancies in the party’s electoral roll, among other issues, and asked the court to halt the election.
However, on Friday, the former finance minister has withdrawn the legal suit to resolve the problems internally. Thus, the court subsequently struck out his suit against the NDC.
The move comes after, a flagbearer aspirant of the NDC, Kojo Bonsu, also called on Dr. Duffuor to consider the interest of the party and withdraw his suit against the party’s primaries.
In his view, Dr. Duffuor should make himself available to the Council of Elders, National Executives, and the Election Directorate to deliberate and settle on an amicable solution to his concerns about the election processes currently facing the party.
The NDC is now expected to proceed with its primaries to elect a flagbearer and parliamentary candidates on Saturday, May 13, ahead of the 2024 elections.
