Supreme Court Adjourns Judgement Of NDC, EC Case Indefinitely
The Supreme Court of Ghana has today indefinitely adjourned the judgement of the case brought before it by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) against the Electoral Commission (EC), over the latter’s decision not to include the existing voter ID card as a requirement in compiling the new voters’ register.
The judgement was initially scheduled for Tuesday, 23rd June but Starr News reports that it has now been indefinitely adjourned by a seven-member panel of the apex court presided over by Chief Justice, Kwesi Anin Yeboah.
This is because the supreme court, which heard a similar case brought before it today, granted a request by the Attorney General to have the two cases consolidated.
The opposition NDC argues that a new voters’ register will deprive many Ghanaians the right to vote in the polls if the existing voters’ ID card is rejected, a claim which is strongly rejected by the EC.
