Update: Konadu sues EC

The National Democratic Party has filed an application at the Human Rights division of the High Court seeking an order of mandamus to force the Electoral Commission to carry out its public duty to have their flag-bearer Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings registered as a presidential candidate for the December elections.

The suit became necessary after the party handed the EC a 24-hour ultimatum to have Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings registered.

As the ultimatum elapsed Wednesday morning, Deputy Communications Director of the NDP, Hilarious Abiu tells Joy News the party has no other choice than to seek legal action on the case and have their leader registered.

He said their presidential aspirant is well known across the country, and since they are hopeful of winning the election, they will fight to get her registered.

“We are quite sure that looking at the facts of the case, the ruling would be in our favour.”
