The Vice President of IMANI Africa, Bright Simons has described as illogical the reasons given by the Electoral Commission (EC) in rejecting old voters’ ID cards as a form of identification in the upcoming mass voters registration exercise.

Bright Simons said the EC’s outlined plans to compile the new voters’ register is flawed.

e Supreme Court last week ordered the EC to provide the legal basis why it has decided to refuse to accept the existing voters’ identification card as a form of identification in the upcoming voters registration exercise.

The EC in response said the old Constitutional Instrument (C.I. 12) which was used in compiling the existing voters’ register did not require any proof of qualification to register as a voter.

This the EC said meant that, anyone who registered under C.I. 12 cannot be said to have satisfied the constitutional test of proving qualification since no proof was required even though the criteria for qualification under Article 12 was set out therein.
