Ghana: Supreme Court orders EC to clean voters' register

A seven-member Supreme Court panel chaired by the Chief Justice, Georgina Wood, has in a ruling, ordered the electoral commission to clean the voters' register before the 2016 elections.

The court held that names of people who registered with the National Health Insurance Card must be deleted from the register but be afforded the opportunity to register again, if they qualify.

The ruling follows a suit filed by former PNC youth organiser Abu Ramada challenging the validity of the current voters register.

Ramadan contends that the current register is compromised and cannot be used for the 2016 general elections.

He wanted the court to declare the register null and void and order a validation of all registered voters.

Meanwhile, the chairperson of the EC Charlotte Osei has indicated the readiness of the commission to implement the ruling of the apex court of the land.
