The Supreme Court has ordered the Electoral Commission (EC ) to provide the legal basis why it has refused to accept the existing voters’ identification card as a form of identification in the upcoming mass voters registration exercise.

A seven-member panel of the court, presided over by the Chief Justice, Justice Anin Yeboah, gave the order Thursday, June 5, during hearing of a suit by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) challenging the upcoming compilation of a new voters register by the EC .

Per the orders of the court, the EC must provide the legal basis by Monday, June 8, 2020.
