The Greater Accra Regional Police Command has secured a court injunction banning the Let My Votes Count Alliance from piquetting in the premises of the Electoral Commission.

This comes on the back of plans by the LMVCA's decision to stage a second demonstration to press home demands for a new Voter's Register for the 2016 elections, after an audit conducted by the New Patriotic Party allegedly revealed names of foreigners from neighbouring countries in the register.

The Alliance staged a similar demonstration on Wednesday, 16th of September which ended up in a bloody confrontation with the police, leaving scores injured, one person dead and another losing his eyesight, when the police tried preventing the group of demonstrators from entering the premises of the EC to piquet.

The police after acquiring the injunction said it will not allow the group to piquet at the premises of the Electoral Commission on September 29.

The National Coordinator of the pressure group,  David Asante has however insisted that the demonstration will still come off as planned in spite of the police's court order.

" The injunction secured by the police  is an ex parte injunction not to prevent us from demonstrating or piquetting. Their only concern is the venue of the demonstration that is the electoral commission. They are not stopping  us from piquetting."

The national coordinator expressed dissatisfaction at the way and manner in which the police acted in securing the injunction.

"We have been duly served, but what makes the matte interesting is that the police asked us to modify our date from the 22 nd to another date, we agreed and postponed our demonstration to the 29th. We were on our way to deliver the modified date to the police. Upon arrival, we saw that the police rushed ahead of us to secure that injuction."

David Asante said the group found it interesting as to why the police will rush ahead of them to secure the injunction prior to the group's arrival to discuss the details of the planned demonstration.
