Zanetor Rawlings is not a registered voter Leaked EC letter

A leaked letter purported to have been authored by the Electoral Commission (EC) says National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for Klottey Korle constituency Zanetor Rawlings is not a registered voter.

The revelation was contained in a letter addressed to Thaddeus Sory, Sory @ Law and cited by Adomonline.com.

“We write to instruct you to conduct the above suit on our behalf. We have received letters from Lawyers of the Plaintiff in the matter requesting information on the status of Dr. Zanetor Agyemang Rawlings as a registered voter as a well as a subpoena duces Tecum served on the commission in respect thereof.

“Our records confirm that she is not on the commission’s register as a registered voter,” the letter signed by EC boss, Charlotte Osei read in part.

Member of Parliament for Klottey Korle, Nii Armah Ashittey, and another aspirant Nii Johnson Coleman have filed a joint suit at an Accra High Court against the Electoral Commission and Dr Zanetor Agyeman Rawlings.

The two are challenging the latter’s legitimacy to contest for a parliamentary seat under the 1992 constitution.

The court is set to hear the case Wednesday.
The two both contested the NDC constituency primaries and lost to Dr Zanetor on November 21, 2015. But they are of the view that her election was unlawful since she is not a registered voter.

It would be recalled, during the NDC’s primary on November 21, Dr Rawlings could not cast her ballot because her name was not found in the voters’ register.

It was then alleged that she not a registered Ghanaian voter.

And a letter written by the EC to the Klottey Korle NDC, which was read on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen on Wednesday states that indeed it has no record to prove that the daughter of the former first family is not a register voter.

The letter was written by the EC on 26th February, 2016 and addressed to Thaddeus Sory, Sory @ Law.
