I support Zanetor not her NDC – Konadu

Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, former First Lady, has said she supports the parliamentary candidacy of her daughter Dr. Zanetor Rawlings but disapprove of her party, NDC.

“She is an adult woman, she is a medical doctor; she hasn’t lived here for some time so she doesn’t even know the nuances of the parties and so on but she has the right to decide which way she wants to go,” Mrs Rawlings, who is also the founder of the National Democratic Party (NDP) told

She added: “I support her as an individual but I am not going to support that party (NDC). I support her as a daughter but not her party”.

The candidature of Dr. Rawlings, who is contesting the Klottey Korle seat, on the ticket of the NDC has been fraught with controversies as the incumbent MP for the area is currently challenging her illegibility in court.

Nii Armah Ashitey contends that the medical doctor cannot represent the ruling party come November because she is not a registered voter in Ghana. His claims have been corroborated by the electoral commission. The matter is currently before the High court.
