Nana Konadu blamed the EC and its Chairperson, Charlotte Osei, for the shortcomings in her nomination forms that led to her disqualification from the race along with 12 other aspirants.
This disqualification is the second successive one for the NDP Flagbearer after same 2012 following some errors in the filing of her nomination forms.

Speaking in an interview with the BBC she firmly stated, “I want my name back on the list, that I am standing as a presidential candidate for the National Democratic Party and she has illegally removed my name from it. She should do what is right and legal in this country.”

Nana Konadu also had some more harsh words for the EC describing its systems as bogus and accused the EC of violating its own regulations.

“It is completely the Electoral Commission’s fault because the Electoral Commission has violated section 9 of CI 94 which obligates her to actually ask us to come and check our forms if she finds anything wrong with it. If there is an anomaly, it is her responsibility to call us,” she asserted. Nana Konadu and her running mate, Kojo Mensah Sosuh, have already petitioned the Commission to reinstate them, after the disqualification and have also threatened a lawsuit.

Why Nana Konadu was disqualified

In explaining the NDP Flagbearers disqualification, the EC said it was unable to accept Nana Konadu’s 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 was not a validly registered voter, and illegally registered twice hence was on the Exclusion list of multiple voters.
