NDC wants court to dismiss Duffuor’s suit

Johnson Asiedu Nketiah

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is praying the High Court to dismiss the case filed by a flagbearer hopeful Dr Kwabena Duffour.

Documents filed by the party’s lawyers describe the case as incompetent, frivolous and one not grounded in law.

The Asiedu Nketiah-led NDC hopes that the court will agree with its defence or at least direct the party to run the crucial presidential and parliamentary elections on May 13.

“We submit that the Plaintiff’s suit is incompetent and therefore ought to be dismissed in limine. Again, the Plaintiff has not been able to demonstrate on the face of his pleadings and affidavit that it is just or convenient for the Honourable Court to grant the injunction that he seeks”, the court document read.

“We, therefore, pray that the Court refuses the instant application”, it submitted.

Dr Duffour has taken steps to get the court to put the elections on hold following accusations of a bloated register barely 48 hours before the polls.

His campaign team maintains the suit will be withdrawn if the party postpones the elections and address their concerns.

Meanwhile, the NDC has assured its delegates that the party’s legal team is working assiduously to ensure that the elections come off as scheduled. The party has called for calm from within its ranks while the matter is sorted out.
