Abu Ramadan heads back to court

The EC had said it cannot delete names of those who registered with NHIS cards based on its own understanding of the ruling.

The Supreme Court supposedly ordered the Electoral Commission to delete from the electoral roll persons who used the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) cards as a form of identification for their registration.

Abu Ramanadan, who had earlier threatened to file a contempt suit against the Electoral Commission following its stance on the Supreme Court ruling on the voters' register said it has finally returned to the court “in fulfillment of our promise to make sure that the Electoral Commission really implements fully the orders of the court.”

“Today my lawyers happily were able to complete the processes of filing and we are waiting hopefully, tomorrow or Friday to get the hearing date for the substantive matter,” he told Accra-based Citi FM.

He said “we decided to go to court to ask the court to give us further direction on the ruling it gave. That is to say that, as the court has ordered, based on that, the court should give us further direction.”

“If we go through that process and that is done and the Commission still refuses to implement the orders of the court, then clearly the issue of contempt of court wouldn’t be ambiguous anymore in the minds of anybody again,” Abu Ramadan explained.
