NPP Decides: Parliamentary primaries suspended in Asante Mampong constituency

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has suspended parliamentary primaries in the Asante Mampong constituency due to a fresh injunction filed by 35 dissatisfied party members against the exercise.

The injunction against the January 27, 2024, parliamentary primaries in the Asante Mampong constituency was led by one Kofi Sarpong.

This was after they filed an appeal on the previous case, that was dismissed by the High Court.

The NPP in Mampong has been involved in a legal dispute since February 2022, when some dissatisfied party members contested the validity of polling station elections.

The High Court in Mampong dismissed the court case, which had lasted for over a year, paving the way for the party to conduct elections for electoral area coordinators and constituency executives.

The plaintiffs, who were unhappy with the High Court ruling, obtained a separate injunction seeking to prevent polling station executives from participating in the NPP’s presidential primaries in 2023.

However, the polling station executives were able to take part in that election as the plaintiffs failed to serve the party on time.

The Asante Mampong Constituency Secretary of the NPP, Alhaji Malik Agyei, confirmed that the party has suspended the elections after being served with the injunction.

“We received a letter yesterday, and the understanding is that some 25 people took the party to court on February 25, 2020, and the reason was that polling station elections that were conducted were unclean because they say people were denied forms, others forms were torn, and others were made to contest for positions that they did not intend to contest, and it was dismissed.”

“Little did we know they have gone again to injunct the primaries. I was there yesterday, and they brought an interlocutory injunction from the High Court and so as we speak now, we have been duly served, and it is to be moved on February 14, 2024, and so we await for the court to sit on the injunction to pave way for the primaries”.
