Ghana’s Supreme Court has given its judgment on the brouhaha over the compilation of a new Voters Register by the Electoral Commission (EC) for the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
But, there is confusion over exactly what the judgment means.
While the General-Secretary of the ruling Nationa Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, insists that the ruling makes it clear that the EC should accept the old voter identity card as a prerequisite for the upcoming registration exercise, others were of the opinion that the reliefs sought by the NDC were thrown out per the judgment.
“The court granted the NDC’s relief two and three but in giving the order it said the exercise should take place in compliance with CL 91 and 126 as amended. That’s what’s causing the confusion now,” JoyNews’ court correspondent explained.
He said the parties are, thus, waiting for the written order from the Supreme Court for clarity.
