The young Zanetor who happens to be the daughter of a former president of Ghana had faced a joint law suit from her contenders who had lost to her, challenging her legitimacy to contest in the parliamentary elections in the first place. The plaintiffs, who both contested the National Democratic congress (NDC) parliamentary election and lost to Dr Zanetor in November last year, asked the court to declare that her election was unlawful as she was not a registered voter in the national electoral roll.

According to Zaneto’s lawyer, the failed contenders were doing that out of spite and not that they had any incriminating evidence against Zaneto. The suit also came after another which had been filed in demand for a re-run of the elections by some party members. This particular suit was ruled out by the court after the said party members could not provide facts to back up their claim.

However, the youths of Klottey Korle have obviously refused to be intimidated. The leader of the group said they will not allow the aggrieved members to disrupt electoral process at the detriment of their candidate. Zanetor on her part, has expressed her displeasure concerning the whole issue. She says she doesn’t feel the arguments of her antagonists are of any significance to the electoral process
