EC rejects ‘no verification no vote’

"Ghana’s election governing body, the Electoral Commission (EC) has rejected the policy of “no verification no vote” as a means of biometric identification of eligible voters for the 2016 general election even though it used the system in the recent Talensi by-election in Upper East region." GOOD ONE THERE.

"The Commission contended that the right of a citizen to vote is fundamental and guaranteed by the 1992 Constitution and no system should obstruct this right." EC WILL FACE A LOT OF LEGAL BATTLE, IF IT YIELDS TO POLITICIANS SELFISH INTEREST OF NO VERIFICATION NO VOTE.
BECAUSE IT WILL BE ABSURD TO TELL SOMEONE THAT HE OR SHE IS NOT QUALIFIED TO VOTE, BECAUSE A MACHINE BEEN BROUGHT BY AN INSTITUTION DOES NOT RECOGNISE THAT PERSON WHO SPENT HIS OR HER TIME IN A QUEUE.
