EC to file legal basis for exclusion of Voters’

The Supreme Court didn’t only asked the EC to explain why they shouldn’t accept the old Voter ID card: the court also asked the NDC ( the applicant) also tell the court as to why the EC should also accept the old voter ID as form of identity. The answer lies in the Supreme Court’s previous rulings that made issue with this same voter ID cards and register. Especially when the Supreme Court in its ruling of (Ramadan & Nimako vrs Electoral Commission of Ghana and or Ramadan & Annor vrs the EC of Ghana: both cases in May 2016 and July 2016 respectively)— The Court ordered the EC under Charlotte Osei to purge the register by removing some people who were found to have registered with the NHIS card and other wrong forms of ID, the EC at the time claimed among other things that they identify those individuals because — according to them of their ( EC) officials failed to indicate these people on the register, though by law those officials should’ve indicated as to which forms of identifications every voter applicant used for registration. These are some of the main reasons why the current EC under Jane Mensah is seeking to annul the current register completely.
