The Northern Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mohammed Samba has toured various exhibition centres in the region to monitor the progress of the electoral commission’s voters register exhibition which is currently on-going across the country.

Mr. Samba and his team toured Yagba/Kubori constituency to monitor the progress of the Exhibition exercise.

He used the opportunity to interact with party executives in the area and entreated them to participate in the exercise and ensure that their names are in the register so that they can make their voices heard when the time for the referendum arrives.

He was briefed by officials of the electoral commission on the progress of work so far, including the patronage of the exercise among others.

The Electoral Commission set Thursday, October 25, 2018, as the commencement date for the Exhibition of the Voters Register prior to the referendum on the creation of six extra regions in the country.
The exhibition of the voters’ register is in line with the Public Elections Regulations 2016 C.I 91, which instructs the Electoral Commission to display the provisional register of voters of each polling station for public inspection.

Addressing the media at a press confab in Accra, Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa stated that “the exhibition will take place in only the 47 Districts in the four proposed regions to be created”, with “all polling stations within the carved areas for the referendum will be designated as exhibition centres for the exhibition”.

She added that both the 2016 and provisional voters register will be placed at the various exhibition centres for prospective voters to verify their personal data and effect the needed changes.

“Both the 2018 Provisional Voters Register and the 2016 Voters would be placed at the Exhibition Centres for prospective voters to verify their details as captured and make requests for amendments or insertions where necessary,” Madam Jean Mensa told the media.
