The hearing for injunction application, initiated by King Faisal Football Club against the 2023 Ghana Football Association (GFA) Elections, has once again been postponed according to Citisportsonline.com.
The new court hearing date is now set for Tuesday, September 19th.
This decision was reached during a virtual court session on Wednesday, September 6th, where both sides’ lawyers agreed to reconvene in approximately two weeks to address their concerns.
As a result, the election process remains in a state of suspension following the completion of candidate vetting.
King Faisal, the plaintiff in this case, has taken legal action to prevent the GFA from proceeding with its originally scheduled presidential election, slated for September 27th in Tamale.
The incumbent GFA President, Kurt Okraku, is facing a challenge from George Afriyie, the former Vice President of the association, for the top position.
King Faisal Football Club is advocating for the continuation of the pause on the Presidential elections until the elections for representatives of the National League clubs, Regional Football Associations, and other associated groups are concluded.
Furthermore, King Faisal seeks a declaration that a proper Congress cannot take place to elect the President until new representatives for the Executive Council (Exco) have been duly elected.
They also contend that electing a new GFA President before Exco representatives is not in accordance with the law.
In addition, the clubs seeks that any decision made by the current Exco members regarding the GFA President’s election before the selection of Exco representatives is viewed as a breach of trust, confidence, and loyalty.
