EC To Print Electoral Register Outside Its Office - NDC

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has claimed that the Electoral Commission (EC) had decided to print the electoral register outside its office even though it had the capacity to do so.

According to the NDC this conduct of the EC is not only against the law but is giving room to outside entities to have access to critical data of the EC which could compromise the credibility of elections.

National Chairman of the NDC, Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, said at a press conference at the party’s headquarters in Accra said the party will sue EC for failing to provide the party with a provisional copy of the voters register to guide it in the ongoing voters register exhibition exercise ending Friday September 20, 2019.

The party said it decided to take that line of action because the EC had failed after incessant requests from the party to do so.

The position of the NDC was anchored on the fact that regulation 22 (2) of the Public Elections Regulations (Voter Registration) as captured in Constitutional Instrument (CI 91 states that: “At the end of the compilation of the provisional register as provided in sub regulation (1), a copy of the provisional register shall be given to each registered political party in the form determined by the Commission.”
