The Electoral Commission has withdrawn the voters identification card issued to the opposition National Democratic Congress’ parliamentary candidate for the Cape Coast North.
According to the Commission, Kwamena Mintah Nyarku allegedly provided false information when he applied for the card, hence, the withdrawal.
EC’s decision might prevent Mr Nyarku from contesting for the 2020 parliamentary seat of the Cape Coast North constituency since he may not have a voters card when the nominations and registration opens.
And by the electoral laws, one cannot contest for a year’s election if the individual is not a registered voter.
The decision to withdraw his card was communicated to him a short while ago.
