In a writ filed on Tuesday, the two Plaintiffs pleaded with the court to set aside the 2012 voters’ register and compel the electoral commission to compile a fresh voters’ register before any new public election or referendum is conducted in this country.

The Petitioners are also praying the Court to issue a declaration that the 2012 voters’ register which contains the name of persons who have not established qualification to be registered is inconsistent with article 42 and 45(a) and therefore unconstitutional, null, void and of no effect.

The electoral commission in its presentation in parliament on the budget allocation for the conduct of the 2016 elections, was silent on whether or not it will compile a fresh register.
