Deputy General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho says the Supreme Court should be allowed to run elections in the country.

He could not fathom why the apex court through its actions is seemingly interfering in the operation of the Electoral Commission (EC).

Koku Anyidoho's comment is in reaction to the directive by the apex court to the EC  to furnish it with a “comprehensive" list of all persons who registered with the NHIS cards.

The Supreme Court in a bid to give further interpretation to its May 5 judgment on the controversy regarding the voters' register, has directed the EC to furnish it with a “comprehensive" list of all persons who registered with the NHIS cards.

Additionally, the apex court directed the EC to develop a guideline on the specific processes and methods they intend to adopt in implementing the orders in the May 5 judgment on the voters register.

The orders follow the interpretation-confusion that ensued between the electoral commission and Abu Ramadan, the plaintiff who went to court to seek interpretation of the legality or otherwise of such names in the electoral roll.

Though the EC has given the assurance it will meet the June 29 deadline given them by the Supreme Court, Mr Anyidoho believes the order is an attempt to do a new voter register.

“It is not possible that the SC will tell the EC what to do because I know the EC in its own way is discharging it duties as an institution and so it is better to allow the Supreme Court to run the elections if it feels the EC is inefficient.

Koku Anyidoho indicated that, since the names of people who registered with NHIS cards can prove their citizenship, then their names ought not to be deleted.

“The NHIS card has been in existence for long and so I don’t understand why they should still demand the list. If the Supreme Court receives the list, what next will they use the names for?” he quizzed on OkayFM's "Ade Akye Abia" Morning Show.
