Political Analyst, Dr. Osei Owusu Bonsu says the brouhaha surrounding the compilation of the new voters’ register must cease after the Supreme Court’s verdict on the issue.

According to him, the exercise if delayed will affect the December polls, hence, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) must stop ‘dragging’ issues.

Speaking on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’, Dr Osei Owusu Bonsu urged the electorates to accept the final verdict of the Apex Court and not what their parties preach.

“The voters’ registration issue is in court, my advice is, the outcome of the court must be accepted and respected by all so we can move forward,” he said.

Dr. Osei Owusu's comment comes after the Supreme Court set 23rd June to rule on the NDC v. EC case.

Supreme Court ruling

The Supreme Court on Thursday, 11th June, 2020, set 23rd June, 2020 as the date to deliver judgement on the NDC v. EC case currently before it concerning whether or not the election management body can exclude the old voter ID card from its forthcoming registration exercise.

The seven-member panel chaired by Chief Justice Anin Yeboah, gave the date after the lawyers of the National Democratic Congress and the Electoral Commission, respectively, gave their arguments to support their stance.
