Accra Fast Track Court places injunction on FA elections

nyantakyiAn Accra Fast Track Court has placed an injunction on the GFA’s presidential elections which is scheduled to come off on August 17.

A legal practitioner, John Quayson, filed an ex-parte injunction application to halt all activities concerning the upcoming polls.

Lawyer Quayson is seeking an interpretation as to why the district level elections and the regional level elections wouldn’t be held before the main FA presidential elections‏.

Among the exhibits presented to support the injunction application was the calendar of the Football Association.

The Ghana Football Association per the regulations has ten days to make an appearance to defend or otherwise prove why the injunction should not be renewed.

The GFA opened nominations for the position of president on Monday ahead of the elections in Tamale next month.

According to the election itinerary, interested persons have until Friday June 17 to fill and submit their forms to the Ghana FA secretariat of any of the Regional Football Association offices.
