A seeming short hearing at suit challenging the decision of the EC to disqualify the flag bearer of the Progressive Peoples Party has finally gone in favor of Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom who was praying the court to compel the EC to accept his nomination for the presidential bid.
An Accra high court Judge Justice Eric Kyie Baffour in his Judgment ordered the EC to give the PPP an opportunity to correct errors in his nomination form to validate his candidature.
After the court hearing which gave Nduom the victory they wanted he address the crowd who were in jubilation at the premises of the Accra High Court.
He stated “This victory is not a great moment for me it’s a great moment for democracy, it’s a great moment for Ghana for our human rights. What this has done it to say to state institutions that none of them can disregard the laws that brought them to being. I am happy the court has told people that cannot art with impunity”
With this ruling by the High Court the Progressive People Party have the chance of competing in the race for Presidential seat in the coming general election.
