High Court okays NDC parliamentary primary in Bunkrugu

NDCThe Tamale High Court has given the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) the green light to hold a parliamentary primary in the Bunkrugu Constituency.

The Court Wednesday presided over by his Lordship Charles Gyamfi upheld the decision by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the NDC to disqualify parliamentary aspirant for Bunkrugu, Nanburr Berrick.

The court also awarded a cost of GH¢20,000 against Mr Berrick, the plaintiff.

The former Member of Parliament (MP) in 2015 filed a writ to challenge his disqualification from the NDC parliamentary primary for the constituency. As a result, NDC was unable to put up a candidate for the constituency.

However, this morning’s judgement means the NDC can go ahead to hold a primary in the Constituency to pick a candidate for the November 7 polls.

The former MP’s spokesperson, Kantam Linlaar, said the Mr Berrick is considering either to appeal against the court’s ruling or contesting as an independent candidate.
