NDC branch executives and ward coordinators from Manhyia South constituency have given the National Executive Committee a 48-hour ultimatum to lift the suspension on the upcoming primaries. This comes after the exemption of Manhyia South, Fomena, and Adansi Asokwa constituencies from participating in the NDC primaries. The aggrieved members have threatened to place an injunction on the primaries scheduled for May 13 in the region over the matter.
The Manhyia South constituency was exempted from the primaries because some persons had raised issues regarding the credibility of the election. Members of the group have warned the national executive committee to call for the removal of the suspension of branch executives that bars these delegates from partaking in the May 13 primaries before they seek legal action.
In a related development, a flagbearer aspirant of NDC, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, has filed an interlocutory injunction against the party’s upcoming presidential and parliamentary primaries. The suit may prevent the party and the Electoral Commission from holding the primaries pending the production of a complete photo album register. The former Finance Minister wants the party to deliver the complete register to him at least five weeks ahead of the election.
