The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said the eligibility of its parliamentary aspirant for the Klottey Korle Constituency, Dr Zanetor Rawlings was not a big deal.

Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Koku Anyidoho, said the party’s parliamentary aspirant, who is not a registered voter, could always have the avenue to sort out their registration issues through the Electoral Commission’s limited registration.

He said the party did not err by allowing Dr Rawlings, who was not registered to pass through vetting.

“…When we were going for our primaries last year as we have done in previous years, what we need is that you must be a bonafide member of the party, actively involved and belonging to a branch and our branches are not only limited to Ghana. We have external process then we go through vetting process, if you pass through the vetting process you are allowed to stand for the primaries,” Mr Anyidoho  told Accra-based Citi FM.

Incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Klottey Korle, Nii Armah Ashietey, and Nii Johnson Coleman, NDC member have filed a joint suit at an Accra High Court disputing NDC’s elected parliamentary aspirant, Dr. Rawlings over her legitimacy to contest for a parliamentary seat, under the 1992 Constitution, because she was not a registered voter.
