A member of the NDC in the Abuakwa North constituency has filed a suit to stop the party’s internal elections slated for May 13, 2023 Edgar Asamoah Boateng questioned the validity of the voters’ register that will be used for the presidential and parliamentary primaries. The suit comes shortly after Dr Kwabena Duffuor withdrew a similar suit from the court.
The presidential and parliamentary primaries of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on May 13, 2023 have been hit by another legal challenge. One Edgar Asamoah Boateng, who claims to be a member of the NDC, has filed a suit at the high court in Adenta to halt the party’s internal elections.
He argued in his statement of claim that candidates contesting in the presidential and parliamentary races have not been given access to the voters’ register. He also raised concerns about the alleged lack of proper photo album of eligible voters, similar to Dr Kwabena Duffuor, a presidential aspirant.
But NDC party officials have said they have not received any writ from him. Abraham Amaliba, the director of legal affairs of the NDC said Edgar’s suit is mischievous and only seeks to undermine the party’s progress towards its primaries. He said the NDC remains united ahead of its internal elections.
