The Injunction to stop the election was incompetent – Andy Appiah Kubi

Member of Parliament for Asante-Akim North, Andy Appiah-Kubi has denied that the party went ahead to stage its parliamentary candidate elections on Saturday, June 20  despite reports that an injunction had been secured to stop the elections from happening in the constituency.

According him, he had no knowledge of any injunction stopping the party from moving forward with the elections so the election had to go on as planned.

There were reports that some 145 delegates of the party in the constituency who accused the party executives of expunging their names from the delegates album of the constituency had secured an injunction stopping the election.

But the sitting MP denied receiving an injunction. According to him, he saw the notice of motion on Facebook on the day after the elections which was Sunday, June 21. He added that the return date on the notice to move the motion of injunction is 2nd July,2020.

The Legislator said every motion is accompanied by an affidavit but what he saw on Facebook was just the notice of motion without an affidavit.

“I saw a notice of motion on Facebook on Sunday. Every motion comes with an affidavit and the motion I saw on Sunday did not come with one. So if we are talking about the same motion that was intended to stop the party from conducting the elections in the constituency then it is incompetent.” – He said

Andy Appiah-Kubi who was speaking to Prof. Sam on Anopa Bosuo also denied reports that he voted more than once at a polling station.
