NPP BA Youth Organizer withdraws injunction against EC
This was after the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organiser, Kwame Baffoe withdrew the motion when the court sat over the case on Wednesday.
Captain Nkrabeah Effah Dartey, who represented Baffoe after conferring with Nana Asante Bediatuo another lawyer who had filed similar suit in the same court, withdrew the motion.
“The motion for interim injunction is struck out as withdrawn.” Mrs Justice Georgina Wood, the Chief Justice presiding said.
The court however did not award any cost.
The SC threw out a similar injunction against the April 28 Limited Voters’ Registration Exercise by Mr Abu Ramadan, former Youth Organiser of the Peoples National Convention (PNC) and Evans Nimako a famer.
Baffoe, contends that that the current national voters’ register, compiled by the EC and intended to be used for the general election is bloated, hence unfit for use.
According to Mr Baffoe the current national voters’ register is replete with names of foreigners, minors, deceased persons and other persons who are constitutionally ineligible to vote in the 2016 general election.
