The National Democratic Congress(NDC) will head to court today [Monday] to defend itself against a suit filed by Member of Parliament(MP) for Afram Plains North, Emmanuel Aboagye Didieyie who is seeking an injunction on the party’s impending National Delegates’ Congress.
The MP, who is vying for the party’s National Organiser position filed the processes after the party’s General Secretary, Asiedu Nketia announced a decision by the party’s Electoral Committee that he has withdrawn from the race.
According to Aboagye Didieyie, he was unjustifiably disqualified by the party’s Vetting Committee.
But the Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, George Lawson has said the party took a decision against the MP because he failed to satisfy the party with regards to the filling of his forms.
Having failed to occasion a reversal of the party’s decision, Didieye went to court to reverse what he described as unlawful disqualification of his candidature.
The court is expected to give a ruling on the matter today.
The party will to go to polls on December 20, 2014 but there is a likelihood that the much-anticipated congress might be postponed considering the latest development.
The party has been dragged to court on several occasions due to a number of court injunctions some aggrieved members of the party placed on its constituency elections.
In September, a Human Rights Court placed an injunction on three constituencies in the wake of its constituency elections, barring the affected constituencies from holding its elections on the said date.
