An Accra Human Rights Court presided over by Justice Anthony Yeboah has fixed August 15, 2016, to deliver judgment in the case in which Paul Afoko is challenging his suspension as national chairman of the main opposition political party.

The court set the date after parties to the Paul Afoko versus New Patriotic Party (NPP) case fully filed their final addresses Tuesday morning.

The suspended National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party is challenging the legitimacy of Madam Gifty Kusi and Alhaji Short as members of the Disciplinary Committee that voted to suspend him on grounds that he acted in ways considered inimical to the political fortunes of the NPP.

He is asking the court to nullify the suspension, arguing that his removal was unconstitutional and lacks basis.

He is also praying the court to invoke the interpretation of the party’s constitution in bringing an objective conclusion to the matter.
