• Per the orders of the court, the EC must provide a legal basis by Monday, June 8, 2020.
The Supreme Court has ordered the Electoral Commission (EC ) to provide the legal basis of why it has refused to accept the existing voters’ identification card as a form of identification in the upcoming mass voters registration exercise. A seven-member panel of the court presided over by the Chief Justice, Justice Anin Yeboah, gave the order Thursday, June 5, during the hearing of a suit by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) challenging the upcoming compilation of a new voters register by the EC. Per the orders of the court, the EC must provide a legal basis by Monday, June 8, 2020.
The lawyers in the case are Godwin Tamakloe for the NDC, Justin Amenuvor for the Electoral Commission, and Godfred Dame representing the Attorney General.
