Breaking News: Court Orders EC To Register NDC’s Cape Coast North Parliamentary Candidate



Emerging reports indicate that a court has ordered the Electoral Commission to register the Cape Coast North Parliamentary Candidate of the opposition NDC, Kwamena Mintah Nyarkoh after his voter’s ID card was withdrawn after the registration due to a challenge process.

On Thursday, July 16, during the EC’s voters’ registration exercise, Mr Nyarko went to register at Nkanfoa polling station for the new Voters card.

However, an observer picked a challenge form and presented his case on the grounds that the house number produced by the candidate did not belong to him and that he was not a resident of Cape Coast North.

In accordance with the law, Cape Coast North EC Registration Officer, Richard Asenso set up a committee to investigate the issues which consequently invited the two parties to present their case.

The Committee later found out that it was indeed true that Nyarkoh is not a resident of the house address in which he provided for his application.

This led to Nyarkoh appealing against the decision of the committee at the High Court, where his appeal was dismissed by the Court presided over by Justice Patience Mills Tetteh.

However, it appears another appeal at the Appeals court has yielded positive reports as revealed on Twitter by NDC MP for South Dayi, Rockson Nelson Dafeamekpor.
