Group secures fresh injunction to halt NPP Asante Mampong parliamentary elections



Asante Mampong Constituency—The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has postponed its parliamentary primaries after some thirty-five party members filed an injunction to prevent the Saturday polls.

Since some angry party members contested the legitimacy of the polling station elections in February 2022, the NPP in Mampong has been involved in a judicial battle.

After more than a year in court, the case was rejected by the Mampong High Court, allowing the party to organise elections for constituency executives and electoral area coordinators.

Filing a supplementary order to stop polling station officials from participating in the NPP’s 2023 presidential primary, the plaintiffs expressed their dissatisfaction with the verdict of the High Court.

Having failed to serve the party in due course, the polling station executives were able to participate in that election.

Leading up to the January 27 parliamentary primaries in Mampong, the plaintiffs, represented led by one Kofi Sarpong, have secured a new injunction in the Court of Appeal. This follows the dismissal of their earlier case by the High Court.

Following service of the injunction, Alhaji Malik Agyei, the NPP’s Asante Mampong Constituency Secretary, affirmed that the party has halted the polls until February 14, 2024. 

“We received a letter yesterday [Jan. 23], and the understanding is that some 25 people took the party to court on February 25, 2020, and the reason was that polling station elections that were conducted were unclean because they say people were denied forms, others forms were torn, and others were made to contest for positions that they did not intend to contest, and it was dismissed,” he explained.

“Little did we know they have gone again to injunct the primaries. I was there yesterday, and they brought an interlocutory injunction from the High Court and so as we speak now, we have been duly served, and it is to be moved on February 14, 2024, and so we await for the court to sit on the injunction to pave way for the primaries,” Alhaji Malik added.
