The Electoral Commission has purged over 56,000 names from its rolls, a measure taken to comply with a Supreme Court order.

The nation’s highest court had ruled that a challenge by Abu Ramadan and Evans Nimako, challenging the eligibility of those who registered with the National Health Insurance Scheme identification card, was valid, and thus ordered the body to purge the name off its lists.

The Commission had tarried on implementing the measure, but at a meeting with political parties Tuesday, the Commission confirmed carrying out the purge, myjoyonline reports.

Thus over 56,000 names of those who registered with the NHIS cards were taken off, their eligibility challenged due to the fact that even foreigners in Ghana could obtain one of the cards.

Ghanaians would be given an opportunity to check whether their names have been affected, and a registration exercise at a later date, ordered by the court, would enable those with other means of identification to get their names back on the register.
