The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) might encounter difficulties with its presidential and parliamentary primaries due to a new injunction application filed against the party.
This latest development happened shortly after Dr. Kwabena Duffour, one of the party’s flagbearer hopefuls, withdrew a previous injunction application.
The NDC, its General Secretary, the National Chairman, and the Electoral Commission have all been sued in this case.
Meanwhile, ABC News is yet to confirm if the party has been served with the new application.
But the plaintiff, Edgar Asamoah Boateng, says that the party has not been able to meet the enshrined constitutional deadlines in its constitution for the 2024 general election.
He further avers among other things that, the NDC itself has been giving conflicting directives on the issuance of a register and is fueling the uncertainty surrounding the credibility of the impending elections.
Mr. Boateng adds that reluctance of the party to provide a complete and credible Photo album register ahead of time to the Presidential and parliamentary aspirants for verification smacks of a plan to create undue advantage for manipulation of the presidential and parliamentary primaries.
“Plaintiff says that the failure to provide a proper photo album of eligible voters has caused a lot of rancor and acrimony in the party. Plaintiff says that all attempts to obtain a proper phot register or album has fallen on deaf ears and all indications are that the impending internal party elections would be a disaster”, parts of the writ sighted by ABC News read in parts.
