The opposition National Democratic Congress has denied agreeing with the Electoral Commission’s (EC) decision to compile a new voters’ register for the next general elections.
According to the party, never was such a decision taken during Wednesday’s Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting.
“We take particular notice of a portion of the EC press release which states as follows: “The Commission will compile a new voters register ahead of the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections. We wish to state emphatically and without any fear of contradiction, that no decision was taken on this matter.”
The Electoral Commission has served notice that it set to compile a new voters’register for the next presidential and parliamentary elections in Ghana after an agreement with the various political parties.
But in a statement issued by the NDC, it is therefore, demanding the withdrawal of the communique issued by the EC because no such consensus was reached.
“In fact, the compilation of a new voters’ register was only mentioned in passing by the EC during discussion on limited registration. There certainly was no “extensive deliberations “ on this particular matter”, the statement added
