The application alsowants the Party restrained from selecting Mr. Erskine or any other aspirant unless the individual is selected by all registered and financial members in the constituency.
An application filed on Wednesday by the former PNP Vice President who was also a former member of parliament for Westmoreland Central, for an emergency injunction was turned down.
However, the matter is to proceed in the Supreme Court on Friday as Justice Glen Brown has ordered Blythe to serve the defendants in the matter, PNP Chairman Robert Pickersgill and PNP General Secretary Paul Burke.
On Monday, the PNP announced that its Executive Committee had unanimously ratified attorney Michael Erskine as the caretaker for Central Westmoreland, to replace former Member of Parliament Roger Clarke who died on August 28.
Blythe who is one of several persons who are seeking to replace the late MP, had given senior officers of the Party until Thursday to rethink the process used to select Erskine or face legal action.
Attorney-at-law Leonard Green is representing Blythe.
