Supporters of incumbent MP, Sarah Adwoa Safo are alleging that names of their supporters from polling to zonal coordinators have been expunged from the register.

The aggrieved party members have headed to two separate courts to injunct the elections.

The first case was filed at the Adenta High Court by one Edward Antwi-Sarpong demanding that the upcoming elections be put on hold until the outstanding issues are addressed.

The Court however struck out the case, citing the plaintiff’s inability to satisfy all internal conflict resolution processes.

The second injunction application is currently before the Kwabenya Circuit Court, brought to it by some Zonal Coordinators, it will be heard on Thursday after it was adjourned on Wednesday following a change in the lawyer of the defendants.

According to him, the machinations orchestrated against Adwoa Safo and supporters seem to be a party agenda. 

“There seems to be a certain agenda against the honorable Member of Parliament. It is a party thing, because we’ve made several calls to any person related to the issue so far as this election is concerned nobody is willing and ready to listen to us and what we have to say. It is as if their minds are made up, they want to get rid of Adwoa Safo,” he stated.
