Injunction placed on NDC congress

A disgruntled member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has secured a court injunction on the party’s upcoming December 20 congress to elect national executives.

The Member of Parliament for Afram Plains North, Emmanuel Aboagye Didieye, claims he was unfairly disqualified from contesting the national organiser position of the ruling party.

The failed aspirant is accusing the vetting committee of acting unconstitutionally in his disqualification.

"The [vetting] committee told me I have been disqualified... It is untrue that I have voluntarily withdrawn... I have to place an injunction on the congress so that we address the issues," Didieye told Starr News.

The over 20-year-old party is scheduled to go to congress later this month in the Ashanti regional capital of Kumasi to elect new national executives ahead of the 2016 general elections.
