I Will Challenge The Outcome Of NDC Youth Organiser Election In Court – Brogya Genfi
Defeated NDC Youth Organiser aspirant, Ernest Yaw Brogya Genfi, has revealed that he will challenge the outcome of the party’s recently held Youth Organiser election in court. According to him, the election was marred by glaring manipulations, hence his decision to protest the results through a legal suit. He explained that
the Saturday’s poll was disrupted by many unfortunate developments, which were orchestrated to favour the incumbent, George Opare Addo. Expressing his sentiments, he said it will not be healthy for the NDC to condone such schemes, hence his resolve to seek justice. “Oh yes, as for that one, I’ll confirm to you; I’ll
seek legal redress”, he stresed. Touching on his plans to go to court, he added that he is currently engaging the services of legal practitioners to firm up his case. Mr Genfi’s decision to go to court comes on the back of the NDC’s Youth and Women’s elections on Saturday, where he was defeated by George Opare Addo. The incumbent,
George Opare Addo, retained his position after a keenly contested election at the University of Cape Coast. Pablo, as he is affectionately called, beat Brogya Genfi, his sole contender by obtaining 533 votes. Brogya Genfi, on the other hand failed to annex the portfolio, after amassing a total of 508 votes of the valid votes cast.
Pablo’s win marks his second successive victory over Brogya Genfi, after beating him in the 2018 contest. Having retained his seat, Pablo, a trained lawyer, will serve as the leader of the party’s Youth wing for the next four years; leading the NDC’s youth into the 2024 general election. In the race for the party’s Deputy National
Organiser, Osman Abdulai Ayriga and Ruth Dela Seddoh emerged victorious in that regard. Ruth, who is the incumbent garnered 313 votes, while Osman Ayriga led the race with 373 votes. Central Regional Youth Organiser, Eric Dadson, followed third with 150 votes. In a related development, the party’s National Women’s
Organiser, Dr Hannah Bissiw, also retained her slot as the leader of the Women’s Wing of the NDC. Meanwhile, the NDC will hold the next phase of its national delegates conference on Saturday, to elect a new national chairman, secretary and persons to occupy other portfolios.
