The High Court in Accra will on Monday, January 14, 2019 hear an application seeking to set aside an interim injunction placed on the upcoming NDC congress to elect a flagbearer for the 2020 election.
The court, presided over by Mrs. Justice Georgina Mensah Datsa, on December 18, 2018 granted the injunction after lawyers for the applicants moved a motion for stay of the elections until their grievances were determined.
A Communication Manager of the Bortianor/Ngleshie Amanfro constituency branch of the party, Albadallah Issah, and James Kabu Nartey-Oman, jointly sued the NDC as an entity over some of its decisions, including the eligibility criteria for applicants.
Counsel for the applicants, Christopher King, moved the application for the grant of the interim injunction at the court’s sitting on December 18, 2018. But Lawyers for the NDC have filed a motion to have the order set aside.
They also filed a motion praying the court to dismiss the applicants suit saying it was without merit. The application praying the court to dismiss the entire suit will be heard on January 18, 2019.
