Chief Scribe of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mr Asiedu Nketia has stated that it is not within the purview of the Electoral Commission (EC) to redefine who a Ghanaian is.

He argues that the 1992 constitution makes it explicitly clear who is qualified to be a Ghanaian and who is not wondering why the EC will in its quest to compile a new voters’ register establish its own set of laws in variance with the constitution.

“You have no right to make new laws to determine who is a Ghanaian because the constitution clearly defines who a Ghanaian is and not the Electoral Commission”, he disclosed to the press while leading a delegation of the Inter Party Resistance Against Compilation of New Voter Register in the Ahafo Region.
