The President of IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe has expressed his disappoitment for the dismissal of their amicus curiae brief, by the Supreme Court.
Speaking after the Supreme Court’s decision on Wednesday, Mr. Cudjoe said, “Well, on the onset of this application, we did say that we were at the benevolence more or less of the law and so what they decide to do we will live with it. It is just that we are disappointed that the court didn’t even consider the brief itself.”
“We think they would have benefitted greatly from it, but look, the laws have spoken and we can’t quarrel with that. We just have to live with it. But I hope that the decision they eventually arrive at will be a decision everyone can live with in this country. I’m just disappointed and I think my colleagues are equally disappointed,” he said.
IMANI Africa and some other civil society groups were seeking to be considered as friends of the court in the case involving the Electoral Commission’s planned voter registration exercise.
