An additional 5,263 people were re-registered by the Electoral Commission at the end of the second phase of registration exercise for deleted ‘NHIS’ voters last Friday.
The Court, in a unanimous decision, however, gave the chance to those who will be disenfranchised due to the new directive to be re-registered.
Following from that, the commission opened the register from July 18 to July 28, 2016 for the registration exercise but had to extend it from August 5 to 12 for a mop up following agitations that many were unable to do so during the first window.
At Efutu in the Central region, where the Member of Parliament, Mr Alexander Afenyo Markin had spearheaded an agitation for extension, 900 voters were re-registered.
