The flagbearer of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, wife of former President Rawlings, has taken to her Facebook to categorically state that she and her party were not “going to back down” after they were disqualified from competing in the upcoming presidential election.
This is the second time Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings has been disqualified from the presidential race.
In 2012, she was disqualified by the Electoral Commission from contesting in the presidential elections over her inability to appropriately fill her nomination forms.
The party subsequently threatened a court action against the EC; but failed in its attempt to secure an injunction against that election.
Now the party has threatened to expose the chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei if the decision of the EC was not reverted.
The Deputy Communications Director of the NDP, Ernest Owusu Bempah in an interview with Richard Sky on Eyewitness News that they were ready to play the game the EC has started.
“If she [Charlotte Osei] wants to go that tangent, we will strip her naked in this country for everybody to know.. we are all ready to play that game. She should come out and tell us who she really is,” he added.
He went on to say that the disqualification of the party’s flagbearer is a deliberate attempt by the EC to ensure the NDP does to contest in the elections.
“This is a deliberate attempt by Charlotte Osei and the EC to disqualify us… they should clap for themselves for tarnishing the image of our multiparty democracy in the country, and deliberately running into the pockets of the government of the day and trying to please their pay masters,” Mr Bempah told Citi.
