Supreme Court ‘Blesses’ Zanetor Rawlings

A five-member panel presided over by Justice William Atuguba has ruled in favour of Dr. Zanetor Agyeman Rawlings to contest in the upcoming general elections.

Supporters of Dr. Zanetor were spotted jubilating at the court premises.

The Supreme Court in a 4-1 majority decision cleared Dr. Zanetor to contest the National Parliamentary election for the Klottey Korle constituency.

Dr. Zanetor went to the apex court seeking the interpretation of article 94 (a).

Nii Ashitey, joined by one other person, filed a suit against Dr. Zanetor, the elected parliamentary nominee of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for Klottey Korle after the latter defeated him in a constituency Primaries for the upcoming general elections held in November 2015.

Mr. Ashitey contested that the daughter of former President Jerry John Rawlings at the time of the NDC primaries was not qualified to contest the NDC Primaries because she was not registered as a voter in Ghana by the Electoral Commission (EC).

Zanetor Rawlings however registered as a voter when the Electoral Commission opened its limited registration in May.
