Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), USA branch, Kofi Tontoh has lauded the High Court’s decision ordering the implementation of the Representation Of the People’s Amendment Act (ROPAA), 2006.
Mr. Tontoh says there’s a mass of Ghanaians living abroad and there’s no justifiable reason to keep disenfranchising them.
ROPAA was passed during the John Kufuor-led NPP administration in 2006 and has since gathered dust on the shelves of the Electoral Commission (EC).
In a landmark ruling Monday, an Accra High Court presided over by Justice Anthony K. Yeboah ordered the EC to take steps to implement the Act.
Speaking to Joy News TV’s News Desk programme, Mr. Tontoh lauded the ruling and stated that it is long overdue.
