Former Finance Minister and flagbearer aspirant of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr Kwabena Duffuor, has filed an injunction application to halt the upcoming NDC presidential primaries. Dr Duffuor is concerned about the electoral album, which he claims has several discrepancies that could affect the integrity of the election. The campaign team of Dr Duffuor had earlier demanded a postponement of the primaries to enable a thorough review of the voters’ register.

In response to the injunction, the Director of Legal Affairs of the NDC, Abraham Amaliba, has described the application as frivolous and vexatious, aimed at disrupting the organization of the internal elections. He has stated that there are no issues with the electoral album and that the suit is an attempt to thwart the efforts of the party in the organization of the primaries.

The NDC has confirmed that it has been served with the injunction application and that the court has fixed 15th May for the hearing, which is two days after the scheduled internal elections. However, the party is working to ensure that the hearing takes place before the elections on May 13.

For the most part, this development underscores the importance of conducting free, fair, and transparent internal elections within political parties in Ghana. It also highlights the need for proper scrutiny of the electoral album and for ensuring the credibility and integrity of the electoral process.

In a nutshell, the NDC should take steps to address the concerns raised by Dr Duffuor and his campaign team to ensure a level playing field for all candidates in the primaries. The court should also expedite the hearing of the injunction application to ensure that the primaries are not unduly delayed.
