The Electoral Commission is set to compile a new voters’ register beginning June 30, 2020.

According to the commission, the exercise will be completed on August 6, 2020.

The electoral management body made the announcement in a statement on the back of the clearance it received from the Supreme Court today, June 25, 2020, for the registration exercise to proceed unabated.

“The Electoral Commission takes this opportunity to assure its stakeholders that the Voters Registration Exercise will start from Tuesday, the 30th of June 2020 to the 6th of August, 2020. The Commission entreats all its stakeholders to hold themselves in readiness for the Voters Registration Exercise,” the EC added in a statement.

Background

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) dragged the EC to court over a decision by the commission to exclude the existing voter ID card as proof of identity for the purposes of the planned voter registration exercise.

A Ghanaian citizen, Mark Takyi-Banson also filed a fresh case, asking the Apex Court to make a pronouncement on the matter.
