There Is Nothing Wrong With Current Voter’s Register, Use …
Deputy Communications Director of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kwaku Boahen, has objected to the decision by the Electoral Commission (EC) to compile a new voters’ register for the 2020 election.
According to him, the decision defied logic and must be fiercely resisted.
“The EC has not been able to impugn the credibility of the current biometric register in any way. The current register satisfies all the essential conditions for a credible register set out by the EC to the Eminent Advisory Committee and the Inter-Party Advisory Committee,” Kweku Boahen told Reynold Agyemang on ‘Pae Mu Ka’ on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7
He described as largely exaggerated claims by the EC that its data centre was defective since the centre has worked effectively since 2012.
“The EC is not fair and indeed has plans to favour the NPP to win the polls, has planned to organize a series of demonstrations to expose the EC.”
According to him, the EC cannot prove that the existing electoral roll is not credible, warning that “the NDC will resist the EC’s attempt to change the voters’ register with all our might through a series of demonstrations.”
He therefore called on the media, civil society organisations, and the diplomatic community to make their voices heard on the decision of the EC to compile a new register for the 2020 elections.
