Former President John Mahama Thursday said the National Democratic Congress Party is “deeply disappointed and disagrees with the Supreme Court’s ruling that excludes the existing voter identification card as an identification requirement for the new Voters registration.
The former President said the decision by the Apex Court had “confounded many legal experts and thrown the country into a state of confusion”.
Addressing the media on Thursday night in reaction to the ruling, Mr Mahama said “despite the well-reasoned reliefs the NDC sought, “the apex court of the land gave the leeway for the Electoral Commission (EC) to go ahead with the exclusion of the existing voter identification card from the list of identification requirements.
“It is worrying that the Court deferred the reasons for its decisions to July 15, by which time the EC would have been two weeks into the registration exercise. ”
