Revealed: Ezenator Rawlings is not a registered voter – EC
The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana has stated that it does not have the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for Klottey Korle constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Ezenator Rawlings on record as a voter register in Ghana.
The EC said this in a letter to a law firm which have been cited by Adomonline.com.
“We write to instruct you to conduct the above suit on our behalf. We have received letters from Lawyers of the Plaintiff in the matter requesting information on the status of Dr. Zenator Agyemang Rawlings as a registered voter as a well as a subpoena duces Tecum served on the commission in respect thereof.
Our records confirm that she is not on the commission’s register as a registered voter,” the letter signed by EC Boss, Charlotte Osei read in part.
Member of Parliament for Klottey Korle, Nii Armah Ashittey, and one Nii Johnson Coleman have filed a joint suit at an Accra High Court against the Electoral Commission and the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for the area, Dr Zanetor Agyeman Rawlings.
The two are challenging the latter’s legitimacy to contest for a parliamentary seat under the 1992 constitution.
The two, who both contested the NDC constituency primaries and lost to Dr Zanetor on November 21, 2015, are of the view that her election was unlawful since she is not a registered voter.
It would be recalled, during the NDC’s primary on November 21, Dr Rawlings could not cast her ballot because her name was not found in the voters’ register.
It was then alleged that she not a registered Ghanaian voter.
And a letter written by the EC to the Klottey Korle NDC, which was read on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen on Wednesday states that indeed it has no record to prove that the daughter of the former first family is not a register voter.
The letter was written by the EC on 26th February, 2016 and addressed to Thaddeus Sory, Sory @ Law.
Below is the letter.
