Speaking on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.3 FM Friday, the opposition politician said he would not relent on petitioning the court should the EC deviate from the exact orders given by the seven-member panel of justices of the Supreme Court Thursday.
The Supreme Court in a ruling Thursday, May 4, 2016, described the nation’s electoral register as “reasonably inaccurate.”
The ruling follows a suit by a former National Youth Organizer of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Abu Ramadan and one Evans Nimako, who were challenging the credibility of the voters’ register.
Abu Ramadan fears any direction apart from what the apex court prescribed could throw the nation into chaos, hence the need to keep the election management body in check vis-à-vis the ruling of the Supreme Court.
“Notwithstanding the roadmap you (EC) suggested to the court to be embarking upon as a way of ensuring a clean up of the register, the court insisted that you go and clean it up immediately by deleting all such names and also afford them the opportunity to register again under the law. The operative word here is immediately, which points to the fact that the Supreme Court doesn’t agree with the processes and procedure chosen by the EC to purge the electoral register.
“The Supreme Court of the land, has admitted that the voters register is not a credible document, therefore, cannot take us into a credible election and that is instructive. And if the commission will still not listen based on the ruling of the court and will not want to sit down by looking at how to make the register credible then we’re back in court again. I’ll meet with my Lawyers next week and if we think the commission is still adamant we’ll go to court again,” Ramadan told host Fiifi Banson.
