CAS adjourns ruling on Palmer,GFA case

 

The Court of Arbitration for Sports have adjourned the ruling on the case between Tema Youth President Wilfred Osei Kwaku Palmer and the Ghana Football Association.


The international adjudicatory body was expected to release the ruling on Friday July 17,2020 but report indicate that the ruling has been adjourned to August 4, 2020.

In a communique released sighted by the decision making body did not state any reason for the adjournment but revealed that the final decision will be out on the new date.

*Background*
Tema Youth President,Wilfred Osei Kweku Palmer, dragged the Ghana Football Association to the Court of Arbitration for Sports after he was disqualified from contesting the 2019 Presidential race by the then Ghana FA Normalization Committee headed by Dr. Kofi Amoah.

The court is bent on coming out with the final verdict on the case very soon.

The outcome is expected to be in favour of Palmer on whether or not to uphold his quest to annul the election and order for fresh polls to decide on a new President for the GFA or allow the status quo to remain.

The situation has put the presidency of Kurt Okraku on the line with wide-reaching implications if Palmer becomes successful.

There are two things likely to happen – CAS to throw out the case and allow the status quo to remain or order for a re-run of the election if it was deemed the plaintiff was unfairly disqualified from the race.

The ruling from CAS will put to rest months of intense anxiety involving all the principal actors.
