EC’s letter against Zanetor Rawlings is irrelevant- Lawyer

Godwin Tamakloe, Lawyer for NDC Klottey Korley Parliamentary candidate, has described as “irrelevant” a letter from the EC confirming his client (Zanetor Rawlings) is not a registered voter.

The daughter of Ghana’s former president has been sued by incumbent MP for the area, Nii Armah Ashitey. The ex-Employment Minister is challenging her eligibility to contest the seat she won in a parliamentary primary late last year.

Zanetor Rawlings is not a registered voter, he claimed but Godwin Tamakloe will have none of that.

“We have always maintained that our client was duly vetted by the National Democratic Congress. She didn’t vet herself. So as far as we are concerned, we have never put out anywhere any issue about membership. They are making the allegation. Let’s see how it goes,” Godwin Tamakloe told journalists.

“Every option available, we will explore it” Mr Tamakloe responded when queried on weather his client will explore the option of registering during the limited registration exercise by the Electoral Commission.

Commenting on the alleged threat on the life of lawyer for MP, Godwin Tamakloe said, “I don’t see why anybody should hold anything personal against Gary [Nimako]. I do not think anybody associated with my client will be engaged in that…Let’s allow the security agencies to do their work”

The case has been adjourned to Tuesday March 9
