Dr. Kwabena Duffour, an NDC flagbearer candidate, has withdrawn his request for an injunction prohibiting the party’s primary elections for president and parliament on Saturday 13 May.
On Friday, May 12, Dr. Duffuor’s attorneys informed the court that they had received instructions from the plaintiff that his team (Dr. Duffuor’s team) had spoken with party officials and had chosen to end the lawsuit.
The Dr. Duffuor campaign claimed that it had not been given a complete list of those eligible to vote in the presidential and legislative elections on May 13.
He requested that the court postpone the elections so that the party could work with the candidates to develop a plan for creating an accurate voter list.
The action comes after Kojo Bonsu, an NDC flagbearer candidate, urged Dr. Duffuor to take the party’s interests into account and drop his lawsuit challenging the party’s primary elections.
Dr. Duffuor should, in his opinion, make himself available to the Council of Elders, National Executives, and the Election Directorate so that they may discuss and find a cooperative solution to his issues with the party’s current election procedures.
In preparation for the 2024 elections, the NDC is now anticipated to move on with its primaries on Saturday, May 13, to choose a flagbearer and parliamentary candidates.
