Ghana: SC orders EC to compile list of 'NHIS voters' by June 29 for deletion

The Supreme Court has ordered the Electoral Commission to compile a list of all voters who were registered onto the poll roll by using their national health insurance cards, which the same court had earlier ruled was not a document that could be used as proof of one’s citizenship.

The Supreme Court on Thursday June 23 gave the EC up to June 29 to comply with the order and submit the list to the court for scrutiny.

The court on 5 May, 2015 ordered the EC to delete the names of ‘NHIS voters’ from the register as well as those who were deceased and minors as part of processes to clean the register.

At Thursday’s hearing, the court ordered the EC to develop a guideline on the specific processes and methods it plans using to carry out the deletion of such names.

The case has been adjourned to June 30.
