Supreme Court Trashes CPP’s Petition Questioning the Constitutionality of Ongoing Biometric Voter Registration

The Supreme Court has rejected the petition of the collaborating political parties that questioned the constitutionality of the NEC in terms of allocating constituencies.

Issuing the Court’s opinion on Wednesday, April 12, Chief Justice Sie-A-Nyeneh Yuoh noted that the Court sees no reason to put an end to the ongoing biometric voter registration.

Justice Yuoh said in the court’s jurisdiction, where a case does not commence at the National Elections Commission and the party adversely affected by a decision therefrom appeals to the Supreme Court, said case does not constitute an election matter within the contemplation of the constitutional mandate that the Supreme Court hears and makes a determination on an election matter within7 days.
