The fresh law suit filed against the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary candidate for the Klottey Korle Constituency, Dr. Zenator Agyeman Rawlings has been described as “dead on arrival.”
Counsel for defendant, Godwin Tamakloe was certain that the case will not move beyond the preliminary level.
“This case is dead on arrival. It will not move beyond the preliminary level,” he told Accra-based Joy FM.
The incumbent NDC Member of Parliament (MP) 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 (EC) and the NDC Dr Rawlings.
They are challenging her legitimacy to contest for a parliamentary seat under the 1992 constitution because she is not a registered voter.
Her lawyer however, believes his client will emerge victorious just as she did in the first suit.
“She has more than a legitimate right. As we speak, she is a Parliamentary candidate elect of the National Democratic Congress – no two ways about it.”
Asked whether Dr. Rawlings has a voters’ ID, her lawyer responded saying, “what she has is that she has been qualified, she contested the election and won by popular votes”
He insisted that the discussion over whether or not his client has a voters’ ID is a “matter for the court. We will reveal that in court… That is their claim; we will see what will happen in court.”
