Court slaps injunction on Manhyia North NPP primary

Collins Owusu Amankwah is NPP's MP for Manhyia North ConstituencyThe parliamentary primary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Manhyia North Constituency scheduled to be held on Sunday, March 13 has suffered another jolt after a court injuncted it.

Details of the injunction are scanty, our correspondent reports, but regional executives are already meeting over the issue.

TV3’s William Evans Nkum quotes the party’s Ashanti Region chairman, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, as saying the exercise will be held a week later, on Sunday, March 20.

Mr Boasiako confirmed that an emergency meeting will be held by the regional executives on the latest development, our correspondent says.

Last Monday, the party announced that the long-standing litigation in the constituency, which saw it exempt from the June 13 nationwide primaries, has been resolved. The resolution team was led by former National Chairman and 2016 Campaign Chairman Peter McManu.

Incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) Collins Owusu Amankwaa is being challenged by Nana Osei Prempeh and the party was in a process of compiling an album for Sunday’s polls.
