Breaking News!: President Mahama to grant presidential pardon to the disqualified presidential candidates.
Disappointed presidential candidate of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), Akua Donkor has accepted her disqualification from the 2016 presidential elections, throwing her support to the incumbent, President John Mahama.
Showing no signs of feeling disheartened, Akua Donkor more popular for comedy said she will do everything in her power to get the president re-elected.
Her endorsement comes as no surprise as the 51-year-old farmer who has been full of praise for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government and full of criticisms for his main challenger, New Patriotic Party (NPP) candidate Nana Akufo-Addo.
Akua Donkor was disqualified for improperly filing her nomination forms. Her forms showed her running mate is 18-year-old not 40 years as required by the constitution.
She is one of 13 presidential candidates whose nomination forms were rejected for failing to meet any of the six key criteria for qualification to contest the December 7 presidential elections.
Together with other disappointed aspirants, Akua Donkor came to the headquarters of the Electoral Commission (EC) at Ridge in Accra seeking an audience with the chairperson of the Commission, Charlotte Osei.
There is a heavy police presence at the EC headquarters in Accra.
United Front Party (UFP) presidential candidate, Akwasi Addai, popularly known as 'Odike' has a special case with the EC. Although he was not disqualified, the EC also did not approve his nomination.
