ASANTE AKYEM NORTH NPP : COURT REJECTS PROCEDURAL APPLICATION AGAINST EXPUNGED NPP MEMBERS

Updated: Jul 25, 2020




An Accra high court has rejected an application by the NPP and Andy Appiah Kubi to throw out a landmark suit that seeks the reinstatement of about 145 delegates who were illegally expunged from the Asante Akyem North Constituency NPP delegate's album.


The party cited procedural irregularities and non- compliance with the constitution of the NPP on the part of the plaintiffs as bases for the court to throw out the case brought before it by the plaintiffs.

The party further argued that the complainants should have filed their complaint by petition and not a writ as required by law and statutes.

The court however, rejected this application and stated that the plaintiffs to all intents and purposes and per the records before the court have met all legal requirements.


A second application tended in by the party which sought to illicit certain answers as to the issuance and services of the injunction processes was also thrown out by the court.


The court in its ruling stated that this particular application brought before it is a "bad application".


It would be recalled that about 145 delegates in 61 polling stations, mostly from Agogo whose names have been unlawfully and fraudulently deleted from the original photo album of the NPP in the Asante Akyem North Constituency successfully filed a suit and an injunction against the party, the Electoral commission and Andy Appiah Kubi on 18th June, 2020.


The case has been adjourned to 13th August, 2020.
