Court places injunction on GFA elections

An Accra Fast Track Court has placed an injunction on the upcoming elections of the Ghana Football Association.

Lawyer John Quayson, who filed the suit against the FA, said that some rules are being violated by the governing body of the Association.
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.

“I feel relieved by the decision of the court. We must compel our leaders to do the right thing,” an elated Quayson said.

The election is slated for August 17.

Nominations were opened on Monday, July 13.

The nomination form for the position of the President of the Association is expected to be completed and submitted to the GFA Secretariat or the RFA office by Friday, July 17.
