The Communications Director for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Sammy Gyamfi has said his outfit will mount pressure on the Electoral Commission (EC) to rescind their decision to compile new voter’s register ahead of the 2020 Elections.
“It is an insult to the EC as a corporate body because it is giving them away as a body which is not interested in protecting the democracy and the strides we have achieved since 1992. They should be prepared for more mass actions. We are not going to stop now. We are not going to give in.”
“We are not going to give up. We know the will of the people is supreme and the will of the people is what will prevail at the end of the day. We are going to occupy the headquarters of the EC and their offices across the 16 regions of the country and we are going to mobilize the ordinary people of this country to mount more pressure on the EC to do the right thing.”
The Eminent Advisory Committee of the Electoral Commission (EC) and the Commission is to meet with members of the Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) to deliberate on issues concerning the plan to compile a new voters register which has generated a national debate.
The committee has, therefore, called for calm from all political parties and other stakeholders “as they work in the national interest”.
The Inter-Party Resistance Against the New Voter’s Register has condemned what it says is the Electoral Commission’s (ECs) deceptive tactics in the Voter’s Register Saga.
