We will delete NHIS cards registrants - EC

The Electoral Commission says it is in the process of developing modalities to enable it to delete the names of persons who registered with the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) cards from the electoral roll as ordered by the Supreme Court.

“Definitely as a law abiding institution as we have always done, we are going to comply with the orders of the Supreme Court,” the spokesperson for the EC, Eric Dzakpasu, told Accra-based Joy FM.

The EC is expected to delete 56,739 names it has identified and other NHIS-registered voters it detects in its database.

To this end, Mr Dzakpasu called on members of the public who have information on NHIS-registered voters to submit them to the commission.

“All other persons who are not on our list, and if anybody has any evidence should submit it to us with the necessary proof then we will proceed to delete them immediately.”

He said the commission would also ensure that those deleted were re-registered for the November elections.
