The South Tongu Constituency has been barred from attending the National Democratic Congress (NDC) conference scheduled for today, December 17, 2022, by the Sogakope High Court.
Members from five branches in the South Tongu constituency sued the Party.
On December 8th, the Court issued an order prohibiting the ostensibly elected executives in the South Tongu Constituency from attending the upcoming national delegate conference.
The plaintiffs in the case represent all five Sogasco-KPEKPO branches, totaling 45 executives, whose problems were resolved by the regional executive committee during the Branch reorganization.
The NDC and the Electoral Commission have both been served with copies of the writ.
SOGAKOPE HIGH COURT (1)
Upon hearing Jerry Edem Amernonu, counsel for plaintiff, the court said it has ordered that “Interlocutory injunction be granted against the purportedly elected South Tongu constituency executives of the defendant’s political party restraining them and or other agents, lawful attorneys, proxies from participating in the upcoming national political election scheduled for 17/12/2022 pending the final determination of the suit. After that, let nature take its course thereafter.”
WRIT OF SUMMONS
Today, Saturday, December 17, the NDC will hold elections to elect national executives.
The polls will be held at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Nearly 10,000 delegates are expected to vote to choose the officers.
