Letter from Konadu’s Lawyers
Lawyers for the National Democratic Party (NDP) have warned the Electoral commission to reverse the disqualification of their client or face a court action within 24 hours.
The NDP presidential candidate Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings was among the 12 individuals disqualified by the EC on Monday over filing fee anomalies.
The others included Dr. Nduom of the PPP, Dr. Hassan Ayariga of APC, Dr. Edward Mahama of the PNC, and Dr. Henry Lartey of the GCPP.
In a letter sighted by StarrFMonline.com, lawyers for Mrs Rawlings, ‘Bentsi-Enchil, Letsa and Ankomah’ said failure by the election management body to reverse the disqualification as being demanded by their client will result in a court action within the stipulated time.
The party is also asking the EC to supply them with details of the basis for their supposed disqualification.
“…It is in the interest of these that we write, first to demand that our client are entitled to under the constitution and by law. Our clients also demand that you rescind your purported disqualification and then instate the names of the party’s presidential candidate and her running mate on the list of candidates for the 2016 presidential election,” portions of the letter noted.
