Ghana’s apex court, the Supreme Court, has adjourned the case between the Electoral Commission (EC) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The Supreme Court was expected to give its final ruling on the legal tussle between the EC and NDC today, June 11, 2020, but was unable to, thereby adjourning the case to June 23, 2020.
At the premises of the apex court today was heavy security presence to avert any form of clashes that may occur due to the high public interest in the matter.
The NDC dragged the EC to the Supreme Court over its decision to exclude existing voters identity cards from the list of breeder documents in compiling a new register.
The party has argued that some 10 million or more eligible voters will be disenfranchised should the decision by the EC stand hence the party’s action.
