The Volta Regional branch of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has suspended one of the disqualified parliamentary aspirants for the Ketu South Constituency Jim Yao Morti.Morti's suspension took effect on Friday, November 13.
The party in a statement Wednesday said the decision has become necessary following the “unacceptable” behavior of Yao Morti and his supporters after his disqualification from the upcoming primaries.
Morti is in court seeking to place an injunction on the Saturday primary in the constituency.
According to the writ, he said he met all laid down requirements stated in the NDC’s guidelines for the election, hence could not understand his disqualification.
“Even though no communication has been channeled to the plaintiff directly, the plaintiff got to know that the reason for the delay and actions of some of the executives of the 1st Defendant to stall his candidature is to assist the 5th defendant who has lost touch with the constituency,” the writ stated.
The NDC goes to the polls on Saturday to elect its Presidential and parliamentary candidates for the 2016 elections.
