NDC postpones flagbearer polls

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has postponed the Party’s flag bearer election slated for Saturday, January 26, until it settles the court case brought against it by two of its aggrieved members.

Two members of the party, Mr. Abdallah Issah and Mr. James Kabu Nartey-Oman sued the party in December last year over the guidelines governing the party’s presidential primary.

Mr. Kobby Barlon, a Deputy National Organiser of the NDC, who confirmed this to the Ghana News Agency on Tuesday, said both the plaintiffs and defendants had agreed on an out-of-court settlement when they appeared before an Accra High Court on Monday, January 14.

He said the court presided over by Mrs. Georgina Mensah-Datsa asked the parties to the case to furnish it with the terms of the settlement on Thursday, January 17.
