Dr. Kwabena Duffuor’s lawsuit seeking an interlocutory injunction on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) primaries over issues of discrepancy has been discontinued.
According to the General Secretary of the party, Mr. Fiifi Kwetey the plaintiff has decided to discontinue the process.
This, in effect, grants the party to proceed with its primaries on the set date.
“We are happy that the plaintiff has decided to discontinue the case. That opens the door for us to proceed with the election tomorrow.
“So we want to use the opportunity to send a message to all the rank and file across the country that we are ready to go right ahead in the election tomorrow,” he said while addressing the media.
Mr. Kwetey also stated that the party will ensure that all necessary logistics for the election would be made available at every election ground.
He expressed that the party is happy the plaintiff himself decided to withdraw the case, stating that there was no case, to begin with as far as the party is concerned.
Addressing the press also, the Director of legal affairs of the party, Abraham Amaliba said the turnout of the event indicates that the party is united and “forging ahead in the 2024 election.”
This also means the Electoral Commission (EC) will backtrack on its decision to not regulate the election unless legal actions against the party are resolved.
