Exiled Award-winning journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni has been vocal on the plan of the Electoral Commission to compile a new voters register in a few months to the December 7 elections.

Last week, the Supreme Court ordered the Electoral Commission to provide legal basis for exempting the old voter’s ID card from the new registration.

The commission responded to the order yesterday in a 31 page document. The Electoral commission in the document claimed that the current voters register is a fruit of a poisonous tree, in their own words, “if the tree is poisonous, the fruit is poisonous.”

Reacting to the report, the former Multimedia journalist asked whether President Akuffo-Addo is “poisonous” because he was elected with a “poisonous” register, alluding to the the Electoral Commission’s assertion.

Manasseh wrote on on Twitter: “If the tree is poisonous, the fruit is poisonous.”– EC on current voter register. What happens to a president elected with that same register? Poisonous?”

Meanwhile, parliament has approved the CI laid before it by the Electoral Commission by a majority vote, paving way for the commission to go ahead and compile the voters register using only the Ghana card and passport as primary documents.
