The Supreme Court has in a unanimous decision ruled that the Electoral Commission (EC) has the power to compile a new register.

It has therefore given the green light to the EC to commence the compilation of the new voters ID registration.

The Court presided over by the Chief Justice Kwesi Anin Yeboah said reasons for their decision will be at the Court registry before or on the 15th of next month (July).

They dismissed almost all reliefs sought by the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Subject to the C.I 126, the EC can continue with the registration.

There is however some confusion as to how many reliefs the Court rejected.
