The Court has dismissed a contempt case against Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyapong.
The Cocoa Affairs High Court in Accra has struck out a suit against the National Chairman of the NPP, Paul Afoko and General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong for contempt.
The court's decision was taken after the leadership agreed to suspend the parliamentary primaries in some three constituencies until constituency elections in those areas are re-organised.
Kwame Owusu Ansah, Sarpong Kumankuma and Anthony Gyamfi Ameyaw sued the two leaders of the party to compel them re-run elections in the Juaben, Kumawu and Manhyia constituency. Read more Contempt Case Against Paul Afoko, Kwabena Agyapong Adjourned
The Supreme Court unanimously dismissed an application for certiorari brought by the NPP Kumawu chairman, Joseph Danso, against the settlement reached between the party and its members in the three constituencies.
According to the application for contempt, the applicants said the national officers of the NPP are deliberately refusing to carry-out the court’s orders even after several written reminders.
The court is expected to rule on the case on Friday when they re-appear.
