NDC Disobeys Court Order, Swears In Opare Addo
See Full List Of NDC National Executives
The National Democratic Congress has defied a court order that sought to stop the party from swearing in its Youth Organiser-elect, George Opare Addo.
It could be recalled that the High Court at Amasaman, on Friday, December 16, granted an application for Interim Injunction against the National Democratic Congress, the NDC Planning Committee Chairman, Alex Segbefia, the NDC Acting Director of Elections, Daniel Amartey, the Electoral Commission and George Opare Addo restraining them, their Agents and/or assigns; from swearing in George Opare Addo as the National Youth Organizer-elect of the NDC.
The defendants were further restrained from referring to Opare Addo as their National Youth Organizer elect.
It was after the court heard an application for interim injunction brought before it by Brogya Genfi, a contestant of the National Youth Organizer election of the NDC, the TEIN President of UPSA, Ibrahim Rashid, and Paul Amaldago, TEIN President for the University of Ghana, Legon, who are challenging the legality of George Opare Addo’s election on grounds that same violated two expressed orders/decisions of the High Court and the expressed directives of the National Democratic Congress.
The plaintiffs filed a Writ of Summons, pleading for the annulment of the just-ended National Youth Organizer election on the basis that 22 TEIN President delegates who by the expressed orders of the High Court were supposed to vote in the elections, were excluded and/or prevented from participating in the elections and that 17 persons who were not supposed to participate in the elections were rather allowed to vote.
However, just after the 10th National Congress held at the Accra Sports Stadium yesterday morning, Opare Addo joined newly elected party executives to swear in the oath of office in direct defiance of the interim injunction by the court.
