EC REFUTES REPORT OF PRINTING NEW VOTER’S CARD

The Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC), has quashed reports purporting that it is secretly printing new voter’s cards after the mass registration exercise.

According to the election management body, those reports are false and untrue, hence it must be treated with the contempt it deserves.

The EC said its attention has been drawn to reports on social media claiming that the elections management body  is printing new cards even after ending the registration.’

However, the EC in a statement described the said report as “false” and “misleading”

“During the just-ended Registration Exercise, few centers experienced the production of duplicate ID cards which resulted from registration kits bearing the same codes.

“As such the cards in the video belong to those persons with duplicate voter ID numbers. They were authorized by the Commission, printed at the Headquarters, and subsequently sent to the District Offices for lamination and distribution”, the EC clarified in the statement.

“The public is therefore advised to disregard the video”, the Commission further stated.
