The Electoral Commission (EC) is now set to present a bill in Parliament to make the Ghana national identification card, commonly known as the Ghana Card, the sole document for citizenship identification in voter registration.

On Wednesday, the EC Chairperson, Mrs. Jean Mensa, informed Graphic Online that the Commission has secured full support from all political parties, enabling the necessary legislative process to proceed.

Mrs. Mensa shared these updates with Graphic Online’s Parliamentary correspondent, Nana Konadu Agyeman, following an Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting in Accra on Wednesday, May 29, 2024.

Mrs. Mensa stated that the EC plans to lay this bill before Parliament in the upcoming session.

“At the Inter-party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting, the issue of the GhanaCard was discussed extensively and I think the advice was that going forward the EC look at laying the bill that seeks to ensure that the Ghana Card is the sole document for the identification of a citizen,” she said.

“The EC still holds the view…that the Ghana Card will help to cure the bussing of minors and the infiltration of minors into our voters register”.
