The High Court has once again dismissed an application brought by the National Democratic Congress (NDC’s) Klottey Korle Parliamentary aspirant, Dr Zanetor Rawlings to overrule a suit brought against her and the party.
A cost of 2,500 cedis was also awarded against Dr Zanetor Rawlings for wasting the courts time. This is the second application to be dismissed by the court.
The MP for the area, Nii Armah Ashitey filed the suit against the NDC and Dr Zanetor Rawlings to challenge her candidature.
Her lawyer, Godwin Tamakloe, argued that Dr Zanetor Rawlings has merely expressed her decision to contest the Parliamentary seat and has not yet offered herself to the Electoral Commission which is yet to open nominations.
But the court presided over by Justice Kwaku Ackah Boafo held otherwise, describing the lawyer’s argument as baseless and some kind of poetry.
