Supporters of the Progressive Peoples Party (PPP) have taken to the streets of Accra this morning to protest ahead of the final judgement on the court hearing of a suit the party filed against the Electoral Commission concerning the disqualification of the flagbearer of the party from contesting the December 7 presidential election.

The Accra High Court is yet to give a ruling on whether the Electoral Commission erred in disqualifying the PPP flagbearer Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom or not – and to decide if the PPP is free to contest in the coming elections.

The supporters dressed in the party’ T-shirts with Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom’s picture have been spotted on the streets protesting against EC’s decision.

Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom was part of 12 other presidential nominees of party's who have been disqualified from contesting in the elections over alleged illegalities on their nomination forms.
