One of the disqualified Presidential Aspirants, Mr. Marricke Kofi Gane is contemplating seeking legal redress against his disqualification.
A statement by the disqualified aspirant reveals that his disqualification by the Electoral Management body smacks of suspicion.
He argues that even though the EC promised to contact aspirants in the event of any infraction, it failed to do so.
“Per the rules and guidelines of the EC, and reiterated at the October 2nd, 2020 meeting, it was communicated that aspirants would be contacted immediately following any discrepancies concerning their filing in time to allow them time to correct any anomalies.
“Unfortunately, neither Mr. Gane nor any member of the Gane4Ghana team was contacted since October 8th, 2020 to inform us of any alleged forgery as has been put forth by the EC on October 19th, 2020”.
The Electoral Commission(EC) on October 19, 2020, cleared 12 candidates to contest the 2020 Presidential elections in December.
Those cleared are; President Nana Akufo-Addo, former President John Mahama, Madam Akua Donkor, Dr. Henry Lartey, Dr. Hassan Ayariga, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, Mr. Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, Brigitte Dzogbenuku; Mr. Alfred Kwame Asiedu Walker, and Reverend Christian Kwabena Andrew (Osofo Kyiri Abosom).
Five aspirants who were hoping to be on the ballot paper have been disqualified by the commission.
Those disqualified are Kofi Koranteng, Marricke Kofi Gane, Akwasi Odike, Kwesi Busumburu and Agyenim Boateng.
