'Multiple voter' knocks out Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings

Former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings has been disqualified for the second time in her attempt to contest as a presidential candidate.

The Electoral Commission announced on Monday that it was unable to accept Mrs Rawlings’ nomination because the number of subscribers to her forms did not meet the requirements of Regulation 7 (2) (b) of C.I. 94.

According to the EC, one subscriber on page 89 of her nomination forms was not a validly registered voter.


He had illegally registered twice and so was on the Exclusion list of multiple voters.

Addressing a press conference in Accra to explain why Nana Konadu’s National Democratic Party (NDP) cannot contest the 2016 presidential elections, the EC said one Salifu Abdulai from the Nanumba South District with Voter ID no: 6617004814 registered on March 28, 2012 but also registered on August 4, 2014 with Voter ID no: 2126900022 and therefore was disqualified.
