The Police secured an injunction to prevent opposition group, Let My Vote Count from picketing at the Electoral Commission (EC) on September 29.

This was after an Accra Circuit Court ruling quashed an earlier ruling by an Accra Magistrate Court which ruled that it cannot grant the permission of the police because the motion they filed had expired.
