NDC Will Adhere to any ruling from the Supreme Court – MAHAMA

John Dramani Mahama the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has stated that the party is willing to adhere to any verdict from the supreme court on the voter’s card registration exercise.

The party disagreed with the Electoral Commission  (EC) on the legal identification documents to be used in the voter registration exercise. In a written wit to the supreme court, the party challenged the decision of the EC to use only the Ghana card or the passport as the form of identification one needs to register in the upcoming voter’s registration exercise.

The party is seeking the inclusion of an existing voter identification card as another form of identification, while a private citizen, Mark Takyi-Banson, is seeking the inclusion of a birth certificate as one of the identifications.

As the party waits for the verdict of the supreme court, the flagbearer John Mahama stated while speaking during a courtesy call on the Fiaga of the Tongor Traditional Area that “Whatever verdict the Supreme Court gives, we are all law-abiding citizens and we shall respect the verdict of the court.”

Former President Mahama said whatever the verdict of the Supreme Court will be, there is still going to be a registration exercise — either a limited registration exercise, a new registration exercise or a validation of an existing register.
