CAS demands swift response from GFA-NC to Palmer’s injunction
The Court of Arbitration for Sports is demanding a swift response from
the Normalization Committee of the Ghana Football Association to claims
by disqualified presidential candidate for the association’s elections –
Wilfred Osei Kwaku.
The Ghana FA Normalization Committee has been given up to two days to table to their response to the claims of the Tema Youth President.
Palmer, as he is affectionaly called prayed to the world sports arbitration body to place an injunction on the upcoming elections of the Ghana FA following his disqualification.
Palmer believes he was handed a raw deal by the Normalization Committee of the Ghana FA hence running to CAS to seek redress.
The disqualified Ghana Football Association (GFA) Presidential aspirant, Wilfred Osei Kwaku Palmer, filed an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) to overturn the Normalisation Committee’s (NC) decision to disqualify him from the 2019 GFA Presidential race.
Osei through his legal representative was seeking for four reliefs:
1. A declaration that Respondent’s Elections Committee’s decision contained in its letter dated the 4th day of October 2019 is null, void and of no effect.
2. A declaration that upon a true and proper construction of the eligibility criteria set forth in the Respondent’s letter of 4th October 2019 for disqualifying Claimant from contesting the presidency of the Respondent’s Executive Council are not justifiable.
3. An order nullifying any election conducted by Respondent pending the final determination of the instant proceedings.
4. An order directed at Respondent to conduct fresh elections, giving each candidate a fair chance of contesting same based on Respondent’s rules.
