Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), is certain that the party would prevail in its legal battle to prevent the presidential primary from taking place.

Instead of Monday, May 15, 2023, the court is anticipated to hear the case on Friday, May 12, 2023.

Since everything is ready for the NDC’s presidential and parliamentary primaries on Saturday, May 13, 2023, the new date is quite important.

However, Mr. Nketia said prior to the court that the party had followed all necessary procedures and had submitted the required paperwork, therefore the injunction could not possibly have an adverse effect on the election.

“We have not flouted any rule. We have done everything we said we were going to do. So in any court we will stand, we know we will have no problem.

“But the issue is since the court is yet to sit on the case, we will wait for that and we are confident the case will be dismissed,” he said on Accra-based Okay FM.

Dr. Duffuor, a candidate for the presidential nomination, launched a lawsuit against the party on Tuesday after discovering what he claims are errors in the party’s voter list that would be utilized for the election.

Five weeks before the elections, according to a writ Dr. Duffuor filed with an Accra High Court, the party was supposed to have provided the required picture album registration in accordance with the party’s bylaws.

He continued by saying that despite their request being made in March, his team received a partial picture album register on May 4.

Furthermore, he asserted that, in contrast to the defendant’s purported 228 constituencies, the hard drive given to his representatives included 220 constituencies.

The Electoral Commission (EC), however, has declared that they will not oversee the election until all legal matters have been settled.

In response to the news, Mr. Nketia stated that the EC’s decision is a positive move.
