Edgar Asamoah Boateng, an NDC member, is requesting a High Court order to stop the party’s presidential and parliamentary primaries from happening on Saturday, May 13, 2023.
The plaintiff, an Abuakwa North party member, expressed surprise in his statement of claim at what he saw to be a lack of a voters register being handed to his agents as well as to all other aspirants, including presidential contenders.
He claims that there is a lot of resentment and antagonism within the party due to the lack of a sufficient photo album of eligible voters.
This occurs shortly after the Accra High Court dismissed Dr. Kwabena Duffour’s request for an injunction to prevent the National Democratic Congress (NDC) from holding its primary elections for president and parliament.
It came after his attorneys requested that the charges be dropped.
Edgar’s attorneys are asking the court for “an order of interlocutory injunction to restrain the Defendants/Respondents, its officers or agents or otherwise howsoever from holding the primary elections for the Nomination of Presidential and Parliamentary Candidates of the National Democratic Congress Party on 13 May 2023 pending the determination of the suit herein as per grounds deposed to in the accompanying affidavit and for any further orders the Honourable Court may deem fit.”
