Some members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Klottey Korle constituency have indicated that their names and signatures on the nomination forms submitted by Dr. Zanetor Agyeman Rawlings to contest last November’s NDC Parliamentary primaries were forged.
According to the aggrieved members who lodged a formal complaint at the Tudu Police Station last week, it has come to their attention that their names and signatures were on the forms Dr. Rawlings submitted.
Pamela Noi, Nana Gyebi Adusei and Jeffrey Nii Yebuah Nortey confirmed to the regional commander Dampare that the signatures against their names were forged.
The others, who include, William Luterodt and Samuel Kwaatelai Quartey, have also confirmed that they never signed the forms in question.
The complainants say they sent a petition on the matter to the Party’s regional executives before the voting day but they were ignored.
Dr. Rawlings, daughter of the founder of NDC and former president, JJ Rawlings, contested the Klottey Korle NDC parliamentary primaries last year and has since been battling a court case challenging her eligibility to have contested the election.
After two attempts to have the case thrown out of the High Court failed, she has referred the case to the Supreme Court to quash the ruling of the High Court.
This move according to legal experts, is clearly to buy time since they are yet to understand the basis of the process in light of the facts of the case.
It is widely believed that the attempt to delay final judgment in the case, for Zanetor to be able to register during the upcoming limited registration exercise, even though the consensus among the legal fraternity is that her registration will not in any way affect the case.
It is rumoured that big wigs in the Party are attempting to intervene to block investigations into the forged signatures from taking place.
