NDC Ade Coker quashes Okaikoi North branch election over threat

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Greater Accra Chairman has annulled the Okaikoi North branch elections conducted so far over an injunction threat.

Some constituency members had threatened to injunct the process after accusing the Chairman there, Fiifi Taylor of imposing a regulation that is not captured in the overall election guidelines.

Mr Taylor had warned the executives will disqualify any candidate who is contesting for a branch position in an area he does not vote.

In regulations 4 and 6 of the Branch elections guidelines do not mandate any executive, including national officers to unilaterally take such a decision.

Irked by the action, some party members in the constituency served notice they will head to court if Mr Taylor does not rescind his “illegal decision.”

At an emergency meeting with the aggrieved members and Constituency executives in his office Monday, Ade Coker reached a consensus with the parties to have the elections held so far to be cancelled.

He also directed Mr Taylor and his colleagues to make available the books containing the list of delegates to the various branch executives.

The branch elections will now be conducted between Saturday and Sunday, all the parties agreed to that.
