CI To Make Ghana Card Sole Registration Document Not Passed– Parliament


Parliament has denied reports that a Constitutional Instrument (CI) seeking to make the Ghana Card the sole document registration document for elections has not been passed.

According to Parliament, the House only held pre-presentation discussions on the CI, to collect input from relevant sources for the drafting of the Constitutional Instrument (CI).

“The attention of Parliament Ghana has been drawn to a report in the Ghanaian Times alleging that Parliament has passed a Constitutional Instrument (CI) to adopt the Ghana Card as the sole registration document.

“Parliament states categorically that it has not passed any such instrument. In any case, Parliament does not pass Constitutional Instruments.

“They only come into force with the effluxion of time; that is, after twenty-one (21) days of the Instrument being laid in the House,” a statement by the Public Affairs Directorate of Parliament explained.

Parliament urges the media to be circumspect with their reportage and to contact the relevant authorities and officers in case of ambiguity or for further clarification on issues concerning or emanating from the House.
