Nana Konadu was disqualified along with 12 other presidential candidates by the EC for filing anomalies.
According to the EC, Nana Konadu can go to court to have her grievances addressed.
Lawyers for Mrs Rawlings, Bentsi-Enchill Letsa and Ankomah chambers, earlier said: “Our clients disagree with you and state that you have no power to proceed in this manner. This is because although section 27 of the Representation of the People Act, 1992 (PNDCL 284) provides that a person who registers twice may be disqualified from voting, there must have been a conviction for the offence and then a term of imprisonment imposed before a disqualification can take effect.”
But in a response to a letter from the NDP's lawyers, the EC's lawyers, Sory@Law said: "Our reading of the rules regulating the presidential elections confirms that the submission of nomination papers for the purpose of contesting the presidential elections confirms that the submission of the forms does not result in the automatic acceptance of such forms by our client."
"Having taken that decision as required by regulation 9(4) of C.I 94 which spells out the procedure for dealing with the matter, our client finds no legal basis to rescind its decision especially that the statutory provisions upon which your letter is grounded do not allow our client such discretion."
"We do not doubt your clients' resolve to pursue their cause to the ends afforded her by the law but we trust that your client will, as dutiful citizens of the Republic of Ghana, support our client’s constitutional mandate and efforts to deliver free, fair and credible elections."
With regards to Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, Chairperson of the EC, Charlotte Osei said: “The Commission is 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 CI 94. One subscriber on page 89 of her nomination forms is not a validly registered voter, and illegally registered twice, and, so, is on the Exclusion list of multiple voters. Details are Salifu Abdulai District: Nanumba South, Voter ID no: 6617004814 (28.3.2012), Voter ID no: 2126900022 (04.8.2014).”
