Electoral Commission rejecting the old voter’s ID Card and Birth Certificate as a valid document for the new voter’s ID registration
Until the electoral commission come out and clarify to the citizens of Ghana, the reason and legal basis behind its decision to reject the old
Ghana voter’s ID Card and Birth Certificate as a valid legal document for the new voter’s ID registration, many law-abiding Ghanaians would continue to ask questions.
The two major legal documents that were used to acquire the Ghana card are the Ghana passport and birth certificate. So if the birth certificate was used to acquire Ghana Card, why can’t the Electoral Commission use the same birth certificate to acquire the new voter’s ID this time around?
And if we are to go by the Electoral Commission’s own claims that non Ghanaians also have the birth certificate then, what makes them too sure that non Ghanaians haven’t registered for the Ghana Card with their birth certificate? Because persons who are not Ghanaians also have birth certificates.
For instance, let’s examine these logical questions:
1. The Ghana card is the only documents that can determine who is a Ghanaian and foreigners.
2. The primary documents used to acquire the Ghana Card are birth certificate and passport.
3. Non Ghanaians also have the Ghanaian birth certificate and passport.
