Supreme Court dismisses NDC’s case – rules old voter’s ID can’t be used in new registration

0

The Supreme Court of Ghana has ruled that the current Voter ID and birth certificates cannot be used as proof of identity in the impending voter registration exercise.

This judgement effectively throws out the challenge by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and a private citizen, Mark Takyi-Banson, who were before the Court questioning the Electoral Commission’s (EC) decision to compile an entirely new register and exclude the existing voter ID.

The Court, however, agrees with the NDC that the right to vote, once conferred on a person, cannot be diminished.

By its decision, the Supreme Court has also halted all actions pending against the EC on the voter registration in any Court.

This will affect Ashaiman Member of Parliament, Ernest Norgbey, who filed an action at the High Court questioning the power of the EC to compile a new register.
