Another ruling application against the presidential and parliamentary elections of the National Democratic Congress ( NDC) is reported to have been filed at the High Court.
A member of the NDC, Edgar Asamoah Boateng is in the Court to block the party from going ahead with the Saturday polls on forward.
He alleges that the lack of an adequate photo album of qualified voters has caused significant hostility within the party(NDC).
His lawyers told the court on Friday, May 12 that they had been instructed by their client to discontinue the case.
His lawyers are praying to the court for “an order of preminary ruling to restrain to Respondents, its officers or agents from holding the primary elections for the Nomination of Presidential and Parliamentary Candidates of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) 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.”
This comes just a few hours after flagbearer aspirant of the NDC Dr Kwabena Duffior withdrew his ruling application from court.
Director of Legal Affairs of the NDC Abraham Amaliba who was in court told journalists that “we are aware the matter has been discontinued, lawyers for Dr Duffuor announced to the court that they had instructed to discontinue the matter and so as we speak the matter has been discontinued.
