The Danquah Institute has expressed it’s committed to embark on an advocacy campaign to press home the essence for a new voter’s register ahead of the 2020 general elections.
The Institute has charged the electoral commission to be guided by the Abu Ramadan vs electoral commission case which buttresses the bloated state of the current register hence the need for a new one.
The EC after declaring its intentions to compile a new voter register has come under intense pressure from some opposition parties and groups calling for the decision to be rescinded.
The NDC has vehemently vowed to use all means to stop the EC’s plans to compile a new voter register for the 2020 general elections.
Addressing a press conference in Accra today, Executive Director of the Danquah Institute, Richard Ahiagbah said,’’ The primary documents admitted in compiling the 2012 and 2016 elections such as the NHIS card lacked credibility making its replacement long overdue.’’
He also appealed to eligible voters to support the quest to compile a new voters by availing themselves at the polling stations while adhering to the various safety protocols.
Mr Ahiagba as part of efforts to supporting the EC to compile a new voter register has also outline some recommendations that they believe if the EC follows will help in a smooth compilation of a new register.
