The Progressive People’s Party (PPP), has sued the Electoral Commission (EC), at the Supreme Court over the decision to disqualify it’s presidential aspirant, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, from the December 7 presidential election.

The PPP is seeking “an order of prohibition to restrain the EC from proceeding with balloting for position of presidential candidates for the 7th December elections.

The plaintiff is also seeking”…a further order directed against the 1st Respondent in her capacity as Returning Officer for Presidential elections to grant the Applicant the opportunity to amend and alter the one anomaly found in his nomination papers as well as accept his nomination papers as amended or altered to enable him contest as a Presidential Candidate for the 7th December 2016 elections.”

“And for such order or further as to this Honourable Court may deem fit.”
