Injunction Threatens NDC National Elections

NDC’s timetable for its pending national elections including the December 7 polls to elect a flagbearer to lead the party in 2020 has been threatened by an injunction being sought by a disqualified aspirant.

Elikem Kotoko is said to have filed a writ praying the court to order the NDC to reinstate him into the contest.

But the party says it has not been officially served.

National Organizer of the NDC, Kofi Adams tells XYZ News the complainant,
Elikem Kotoko appealed against his disqualification after his initial vetting but again lost.

Mr Adams says NDC legal team will study the docket if they are served and respond appropriately.

“ I have seen something on social media but I yet to find out if we have been served. Its true Elikem was disqualified for not meeting the criteria set by the 2018 Election Committee.

Once we receive any summons, we shall instruct our lawyers to respond or advise. He appeared before the Appeals Committee on the 28th of September and failed to convince them so they upheld the decision of the Vetting committee”…… Mr Adams told XYZ News.

The NDC has slated next Saturday October 27ths for the election of National Youth and Women executives at Gomoah Fetteh and that of a flagbearer is scheduled to take place on December 7, this year.

“ If an injunction is secured, it will affect our timetable seriously. We are already later in terms of our election calendar and any action that further prolongues issues will seriously affect our plan. It will do a lot of harm to the party” ..he further stated.
