Zanetor Rawlings now a registered voter

Dr. Zanetor Agyeman Rawlings

Dr. Zanetor Rawlings has now been cleared to cast her ballot in the 2016 general elections after she got registered as a voter today.

The daughter of former President Jerry John Rawlings registered Thursday at the Nyaniba Polling Station in the Klottey Korle constitution of the Greater Accra Region.

Her registration would come as a big relief to supporters of Zanetor, who is the National Democratic Congress parliamentary nominee for the Klottey Korle constituency.

Her candidature has been dogged with controversy following revelation that she was not a registered voter in Ghana.

The incumbent Member of Parliament for Klottey Korle, Nii Armah Ashietey has even dragged her to an Accra High Court praying it to declare her election by the party as null and void.

Dr Zanetor has also filed application at the Supreme Court challenging the capacity of the High Court to hear the case concerning her candidature.

Hearing was adjourned on Wednesday to May 3.

As the challenge to her candidacy bothered on the fact that she is not a registered voter, the embattled medical doctor took advantage of the 10-day limited registration by the Electoral Commission which began today.

It is however not clear if her opponent will prosecute the case further in court.
