Dynamic Youth Movement of Ghana v Ken Ofori Atta

The Supreme Court will on June 23, 2020, deliver its judgment in the case in which the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC), challenges the exclusion of the existing voter ID cards from the list of documents needed to register to vote in the 2020 general elections.
Early on today, the Supreme Court, listened to legal arguments from the NDC, the Deputy Attorney General and the Electoral Commission.
NDC had argued that the Court by its own decision had certified the existing voter ID as proof of citizenship and therefore it is at a loss as to why the EC is seeking to go contrary to that decision.
Hence It has asked the court to order the EC to include the existing voters’ ID card to the list of identification documents needed to register to vote apart from the Ghana card and passport.
This follows a directive from the Supreme Court judges for the party to make a choice on which of their two reliefs they wanted a decision on.
Being given the option while on his feet in court, lawyer for the NDC, Godwin Tamakloe, opted for a ruling on the use of the old voter ID.
