The Parliamentary Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Cape Coast North Constituency says he has legally challenged a decision by the District Registration Review Committee of the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) to withdraw his voter identity card.
Dr Kwamina Minta Nyarku was disqualified as a voter in the Constituency after he was found guilty for allegedly providing false information during registration.
His registration was, subsequently, challenged by a constituent, believed to be an agent of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), for not being a resident Nkanfoa, where he registered.
The Committee consequently sat on the case and ruled that the NDC Parliamentary Candidate does not qualify to be a voter in the Constituency.
But in a release on Tuesday, July 14, Dr Minta Nyarku says he meets all requirements to vote in Ghana contrary to the reports “and, indeed, I have participated in the previous elections conducted by the Electoral Commission of Ghana”.
“I have been voting in the Cape Coast North Constituency in the previous elections.
“I have been a resident and still a resident of the Cape Coast North Constituency.
