Old Voter’s ID Cannot Be Used For New Registration – Supreme Court
Ghana's Supreme Court has chosen the Electoral Commission (EC) will accumulate another voter register without tolerating the current ID cards.
This was uncovered in the decision conveyed by the Apex Court on Thursday, June 25.
The court said in it's judgment, "It is thusly requested that all partners and the Ghanaian qualified voters are coordinated to consent to Articles 42 and 45 of the constitution… in doing their sacred command in the accumulation of another voters register."
