The Judicial Board of the Hilla Limann Hall of the University of Ghana has granted an interlocutory injunction on this year’s JCR Elections.
The elections, which was scheduled for today November 9, was to elect a new executive body for the hall.
The order by the court was given after a resident of the Hall, Fritz Moses, on Thursday, November 8, filed an ex parte motion for injunction on the JCR elections.
In the suit, Fritz Moses, prayed the court to halt all electioneering process because, per the Hilla Limann JCR constitution, conducting an election in the first semester is a breach of the provisions contained in article 40(b) and (c).
Provisions in Article 40(b) and (c)
1. (b) The Electoral Commissioner shall conduct floor and block elections a week prior to the general elections of the JCR
2. (c) The floor representatives shall be elected in the second semester of the academic year and they shall leave their office at the end of the second semester of the next academic year unless voted for second term.
The court after sitting on the case gave the following ruling in favor of the plaintiff.
“… this honorable court are of the view that the elements stated in the above cases for an interim injunction to be granted have been duly satisfied. Application for interlocutory injunctions granted. The EC is hereby ordered to stop all electoral activities pending the final determination of the suit”
