The case between Nana Yaw Ntim and Carlos Ahenkorah, the New Patriotic Party’s Parliamentary Candidate for Tema, and The Party, presided over by Justice Norvisi Aryene, has been adjourned to 16, 17 and 18th of this month.
The plaintiff, Nana Yaw Ntim, suspected to be a supporter of the defeated sitting Member of Parliament (MP), Irene Naa Torshie Addo, filed a suit against Carlos Ahenkorah, praying the court to disqualify him [Carlos], as a parliamentary candidate of the NPP.
This, according to the suit, is because Carlos Ahenkorah was not a registered voter in the Tema West Constituency, at the time of the conduct of the NPP Primary in the Constituency.
The petition also called for his disqualification on the grounds that, Mr. Ahenkorah, is not a Ga indigene, yet contested in a Coastal Community. Carlos Ahenkorah defeated NPP’s incumbent MP for Tema West, Irene Naa Torshie Addo, in the Party’s Parliamentary Primaries.
Carlos Ahenkorah polled 503 while Naa Torshie Addo had 273. The other contender, Adwoa Amoakoa had 2 votes.
Speaking to journalists on the adjournment, The Publicist of Carlos’ Campaign Team, Daniel Abaka, is optimistic, that his boss will win the case. He, however, described the on-going case as a waste of time.
