06.05.2004 LISTEN

Ho, May 6, GNA - Mr Justice Richard Apaloo, a Ho High Court Judge on Wednesday asked the Executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to give equal opportunities to all members who wish to contest its constituency primaries.

Mr Justice Apaloo gave the advice when he adjourned a case in which Dr Kwabena Adjei, Member of Parliament (MP) for Biakoye was seeking an interlocutory injunction to restrain the NDC and the Biakoye Constituency Chairman of the Party, Mr Maxwell Owusu-Siaw from going ahead with the constituency primaries because he was denied the opportunity to file his nomination papers.

Mr Justice Apaloo asked Mr G.K Etsi-Mensa and Mr Saviour Dzikunu counsel for Dr Adjei and the NDC and Mr Owusu-Siaw respectively to get involved in talks aimed at resolving the matter and ensure that equal opportunities were given to all those interested in filing their nominations to contest the primaries.

This was after Mr Etsi-Mensa had intimated to the Court that " we have been talking and talking and would continue talking" as the nominations had been suspended. 06 May 2004.
