National Democratic Congress (NDC) member of parliament for Tamale North Alhaji Alhassan Suhuyini has urged all Ghanaians, particularly supporters of the NDC to turn up in their numbers to register for the new voters ID.
According to him, Ghanaians should see the registration exercise as a way of punishing president Akufo Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) by acquiring the card and voting against the NPP in the December polls.
“The process of registration will get frustrating and risky at times because of covid-19. When it does we must remember who to punish with the new Voters ID we will acquire” he wrote on his twitter page.
The Supreme Court in a unanimous decision Thursday, June 25, a seven-member panel of the Supreme Court dismissed the case by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) which wanted an order for the use of the existing voter ID card and one Mark Takyi-Benson, who wanted the use of a birth certificate as source documents for eligibility to register as a voter.
The Supreme Court further held that the Electoral Commission (EC) has the authority granted under Article 45 of the 1992 Constitution to compile an electoral roll.
The apex court granted only two reliefs sought by the NDC which had nothing to do with the inclusion of the use of an existing voter ID card as source documents and dismissed all the other reliefs.
