The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that the Electoral Commission must delete from the voters register, names of persons who were registered unconstitutionally in 2012.

Such persons included those who registered with the National Health Insurance Scheme identity cards and minors.

Abu Ramadan had called on the Supreme Court for, "a declaration that upon a true and proper interpretation of Article 45(a) of the Constitution of the Republic of Ghana, 1992, the mandate of the Electoral Commission of Ghana to compile the register of voters implies, a duty to compile fair and transparent register."

He was commenting on the ruling in a radio interview on Asempa FM where he expressed his excitement that the argument about the voters register has been put to bed by the court.

According to him it would have been a supreme error and to have sat down and watch people without credible validity to choose a president or a member of parliament for the country.
