NEW VOTER’S REGISTER CREDIBLE-EVANS NIMAKO
The Director of Elections for New Patriotic Party, Evans Nimako has said the new voter’s register is credible ahead of the 2020 elections.
He stressed that, the new voter’s register has made sure several ineligible people who were on the old voters register have been removed.
“The Commission is mindful of the infiltration of foreigners at a number of our registration centres. Additionally, we are aware that a number of minors have found their way into the register.
“We are confident that the challenge processes initiated at all districts throughout the country will unearth these illegal persons and rid the register of those who do not qualify to be thereon.”
“At this stage, the position of the NPP has been vindicated. We [NPP] had held the position that our 2012 register had some defects and wasn’t fit for purpose. The NPP will always make sure that the laws work so if there are minors and foreigners on our register, the laws must be applied…to a large extent, we’ll have a more credible register than if we had kept the old one and done a limited registration exercise,” Mr Nimako told Morning Starr host Lantam Papanko.
The Electoral Commission has registered EC has 16,963,306 persons at the end of the voter registration exercise.
