Ayikoi Otoo leads PPP to court
The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has sued the Electoral Commission in a bid to reverse the disqualification of its presidential nominee, Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom, StarrFMonline.com has gathered.
The PPP’s suit, Starr News’ Wilberforce Asare reported was filed by former Attorney General in the erstwhile Kufour administration, Nii Ayikoi Otoo.
The Electoral Commission on Monday 10 October announced the disqualification of Nduom and 11 others from the presidential race.
It explained that it was unable to accept the nominations of Nduom, because the number of subscribers in his forms did not make the requirements of regulation 7(2) of CI 94 and that “one subscriber, Mr Richard Aseda, with voter ID number 7812003957 endorsed Dr Nduom’s forms in the Central region and again endorsed the same forms with the same ID number in the Volta region.”
