Dismiss suit against Zanetor – Counsel

Lead counsel for Dr Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings on Friday March 18, prayed the Accra High Court to strike out the interlocutory injunction against his client on the grounds that the action was premature and the jurisdiction of the court had been wrongfully invoked.

Dr Agyeman-Rawlings, who won the NDC parliamentary primaries at Klottey Korle in November 2015, is being challenged by the incumbent MP for the constituency, Nii Armah Ashitey, who argued that the daughter of former President Jerry John Rawlings, was not eligible to contest in the constituency.

The Electoral Commission has confirmed that Dr Agyeman- Rawlings is not a registered voter.

The High Court is yet to make a final determination as to whether she can contest the seat on the ticket of the ruling party in the forthcoming November polls.

Meanwhile, counsel for the governing NDC has also declared the party’s intention to move a motion to strike out the case.

The party is yet to file an application to that effect. The case was adjourned to 22 March.
