Ndc Charges EC To Retrieve Gender Minister’s Voter ID card After Being Challenged For Not Being a Resident

The Agona West National Democratic Congress (NDC) has charged the Electoral Commission to as a matter of urgency retrieve the Voter ID card issued to the Member of Parliament for the constituency, Madam Cynthia Mamle Morrison after her registration was successfully challenged.

On Monday July 27, 2020, the MP for Agona West Constituency who doubles as the Minister for Gender and Social Protection appeared at the Ntiamoah Hotel Polling station in the Wawase/Amponsah/Nyamendam Electoral Area to register for her new Voters’ ID card.

Though the NDC believes it is the sole right of the Hon MP to register as a voter, she should have done so in accordance with the law especially as a Law Maker.

It is common knowledge that any eligible voter should register at an electoral area s/he has resided in for a total period of 12 months before the day of registration.

Again, as per the Electoral Commission’s regulations, a person challenged for falling short of any of the stated electoral requirements must NOT go with his/her Voter ID card until the challenged issue is resolved.

As Member of Parliament who should know better, she registered in an electoral area she does not reside in and forcefully went away with her card after attempt by the EC officials to retrieve the card from her proved futile, with the police officer on duty looking on.

Foremost, the NDC demands the immediate retrieval of the Voter ID card from Madam Cynthia Morrison until after the hearing by the District Registration Review Committee (DRRC) slated for 8th August, 2020.

The Ghanaian laws must always be respected by all people irrespective of one’s standing to safeguard our democracy.
