The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, has called on the Electoral Commission (EC) to present a more accurate list of people who used their National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) cards as proof of identification during registration.
The EC, last week, presented a list of 56, 000 people who they say used their NHIS cards to register ahead of the last election.
The Supreme Court had ordered the EC to furnish it with the list in response to a case brought before it by former National Youth Organizer of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Abu Ramadan.
However, the list has been met with scorn from several observers who have described the number of NHIS registrants as ‘unbelievable.’
According to Nana Konadu, the EC’s list did not accurately capture the number of NHIS registrants
“You and I know it is not 56,000 that registered with NHIS cards. It is far more than that. They should just abide by what the Supreme Court is saying. I think this will make all Ghanaians happy and it will also help us to have some level of equity and justice within the electoral system.”
“The Supreme Court is the highest court of the land and when it speaks all must obey. If the court has said certain things must be done in eliminating all those who registered with NHIS cards, it should be done,” she said.
