Some members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Tema Central Constituency, have secured an interlocutory injunction on the constituency’s executive election.
The injunction is against the eligibility of the executives of 24 branches of the party in the constituency.
Mr Watson Tizor Apentsui, Tema Metropolitan Electoral Officer, said due to the injunction, the NDC Tema Central elections scheduled for Friday, September 11, was postponed.

He said until the Tema High Court sat and move the motion on the injunction on September 16, the EC would not be able to conduct the election.
