CAS orders GFA NC to respond to Palmer's injuction request before Monday

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has ordered the Ghana Football Association Normalisation Committee to respond to Wilfred Kwaku Osei's injunction request before proceeding to hold the FA elections.

The Dr. Kofi Amoah led committee are expected to settle the impasse between them and the aggrieved candidate before Monday 10:00 am Switzerland time.

Wilfred Osei, popularly known as Palmer is contesting his 'unfair' disqualification from running for the Ghana Football Association President.

The Ghana Football Association President hopeful had reported the Normalisation Committee to FIFA, CAF, CAS and the Sports Ministry early this week.

Palmer was disqualified from contesting for failing to pay a 10% cut of the sale of ex-Tema Youth winger Joseph Painstil.

According to the NC, his disqualification was based on the breach of Article 33 (5) of the Ghana Football Association regulation.

Palmer was one of the leading aspirants for the position of the GFA Presidency.

The Ghana Football Association Election comes off on October 25th but the legal tussles might forced the date to be pushed forward.
