Lawyers of the National Democratic Party (NDP) are considering legal action against the Electoral Commission after the party’s flag bearer was disqualified from contesting in the December polls.

Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings was among 12 other candidates who failed to meet the necessary requirements that make them eligible to contest.

In a strong worded letter signed by Ace Ankomah to the EC on Tuesday, the party insisted that the decision to disqualify its candidate was incongruous to Section 43 of the Representation of the People’s Act, and therefore, urged the EC to reverse the decision.

Chairperson of the EC, Mrs Charlotte Osei, on Monday disqualified 12 presidential aspirants and disclosed that those who forged signatures and other information while filling their nomination forms will face the law for flouting CI 94 of the EC’s regulations.

In most cases, the suspects signed more than one nomination form and tried in various ways to hide their illegal action, including changing their signatures and altering their names.
