“The court will give us date for the hearing of the matter this week. The court is on vacation, they can’t attend to any matter now unless it is special. All what we need to do now is to is to apply for accelerated hearing which we’ve done. Once the matter is settled, the party will have time to concentrate on the local government polls,” he said.
