Details Of The Injunction
The injunction followed a legal action initiated by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo Prampram, Mr Sam Nartey George.
Per the interim injunction , the EC or any of its affiliates is barred from organising the worshop within the period the injunction would be in forc.
“It is hereby ordered that the respondent and all persons claiming through the respondent refrain from holding the workshop or conference scheduled to take place at the Escape Hotel from April 24,” the court, presided over by Justice Eugene Nyante Nyadu, ordered.
Mr George is challenging the decision of the EC to organise the workshop and therefore his injunction application was to stop the electoral management body from going ahead with the workshop which was slated from April 24 to April 29.
