The Member of Parliament (MP) for Afram Plains South, Mr Joseph Appiah Boateng, has threatened to place an injunction on the parliamentary election in the constituency if the Electoral Commission fails to explain within 48 hours the basis under which it allowed two people to file to contest.

According to him, the EC, being an independent body should not have allowed two people to file on the ticket of the NDC.

Mr Boateng who is the current MP for the area withdrew his nomination to contest a due to a pending court case against him in Ghana. The MP is alleged to have been convicted of fraud outside the country.

Following his withdrawal, the NDC Regional Secretary, Mr Mark Oliver Kevor, was supported by the party executive members to file his nomination.

According to Mr Boateng, another person, Mr Eric Osei Owusu, the Chief Executive Officer of the Buffer Stock Company, also went ahead to file his nomination on the ticket of the NDC in the constituency.

The situation, he argues, has created confusion and tension within the NDC in the area, as the party is unable to campaign for votes ahead of the polls.

He accused some national executive members of the NDC of pushing for Mr Osei Owusu to contest the election on the ticket of the party.
