An Accra High Court has placed an interim injunction on the upcoming election by the National Democratic Congress (NDC), aimed at electing a flagbearer for Election 2020.

The interim injunction follows the filing of a suit by two members of the party in Accra, who are claiming that the guidelines for the conduct of the election which has been introduced by the National Executive Committee of the party, are against the 1992 constitution of the NDC.

The plaintiffs, Abdallah Issa from Galelia and James Kabu Natey-Oman from Old Bortianor, applied for the injunction to restrain the party and its committees, agents and authorised bodies from proceeding with the Presidential primary in the manner outlined in the said published guidelines until a final determination of the suit.

The Accra High Court Tuesday granted the interim injunction.

Among the reliefs the plaintiffs are seeking include, a declaration that the guidelines published by the NDC for the presidential election is “null and void” and that it was, “ultra vires”, to the constitution of the NDC.

They also want the court to declare that the introduction of some eligibility criteria as conditions precedent for Presidential Candidates as part of the said guidelines provoke the letter and spirit of the NDC constitution and are unlawful.
