Court rubbish Konadu’s disqualification suit against EC

National Democratic Party Presidential candidate, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings’ suit challenging her disqualification by the Electoral Commission has been thrown out.

An Accra High Court presided over by Justic Goerge Koomson struck out the suit on procedural grounds.

He explained that it is against procedures of court to file a joint application praying for the EC’s decision to be reviewed and at the same time demand for the enforcement of the Presidential candidate’s fundamental human right to vote and be voted for.

The court has also fined the applicants GHC10,000.

Ace Ankomah who is counsel for Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings told the press, he will file a fresh suit by close of the day.
