The Electoral Commission said it will announce the modalities that it will use to delete names of voters who used the National Health Insurance Scheme, NHIS, Cards, to register as evidence of their citizenship, next week.
In a statement signed by the Deputy Chair, of the commission in charge of Corporate Services, Georgina Opoku Amankwaa, the Commission is taking the appropriate steps to comply with the Court’s directives.
The apex Court, in clarifying its earlier judgement on May 5, 2016 on the matter, asked the Commission to immediately delete the names of such persons from the current Voters’ Register.
The Court, added further that, these persons should thereafter be given the opportunity to re- register and enabled to take part in the 2016 general elections.
The statement indicated that The Commission welcomes this new development which will help the EC and all stakeholders to ensure a clean and credible register ahead of the elections.
The announcement next week will also outline the modalities for the exhibition of the 2016 provisional voters Register which is scheduled to start on 18th July, 2016 in all polling/exhibition centres across the country.
