EC promises to keep names of NHIS card holders in register

The Electoral Commission (EC) has assured it would not expunge names of persons who registered with their National Health Insurance (NHIS) cards from the electoral roll.

At an Inter - Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting the commission said the Supreme Court did not order it to delete names of NHIS registrants - a decision which follows a supreme court order for the deletion of such names from the voters roll.

The commission noted that it would conduct an audit that will involve removal of deceased registered voters, removal of multiple registrations (with the help of the AFIS software), removal of alleged minors and non-Ghanaians based on the production of evidence.
