NDC given 24-hr ultimatum to disqualify Zanetor Rawlings

Some members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have petitioned the party’s National Executive Committee to disqualify Dr Zanetor Agyeman Rawlings, who emerged winner of the recently held parliamentary primary in the Klottey Korle Constituency.

According to the four petitioners, who are all NDC members in the Constituency, Dr Rawlings was not eligible to stand as an aspirant as per the party’s regulations.

They claim the daughter of the former first couple was not a registered voter, a requirement which is binding on each aspirant in the nationwide primaries.

“That we are convinced Dr. Zanetor Agyeman Rawlings’ name is not on the EC voters register considering that she was not registered in the party’s biometric register which was a product of the EC voter’s register and which was used in the last primaries.

“From the above, we are of the firm belief that the afore-mentioned person should have been disqualified from contesting the primaries because she was not a registered voter.”

They want a disqualification of Dr Rawlings pronto, failure of which “we will advise ourselves accordingly.”
