The Electoral Commission has indicated it is unfazed by last Saturday’s tikusayi demonstration by some opposition political parties in the Northern Regional capital, Tamale, against the compilation of a new voter’s register for the 2020 elections.
The commission, BestNewsGH.com can report, issued what can be described as Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) less than 24 hours after the demonstration on its Facebook Page.
In response to a question on whether the Commission will continue with plans to roll out a new voters register, the commission answered “Yes, the Commission will continue with the process of acquiring a new biometric system because it is in the national interest to conduct credible elections as mandated by law,” the post stated.
The Commission insists that the voter roll is bloated and that it has become “very difficult to remove the names of the deceased from the register”.
