Pull brakes on new controversial CI proposal – Minority tells EC

Cassiel Ato Forson is Minority Leader in Parliament

The Minority in Parliament says it will continue to pile pressure on the Electoral Commission (EC) to abort its newly proposed Constitutional Instrument.

The CI, if adopted, will make the Ghana card the sole identity document to register as a voter.

For hours yesterday, EC Chairperson and NIA Executive Secretary briefed MPs on this controversial matter but the NDC does not seem satisfied with the answers provided.

Minority Leader Dr Cassiel Ato Forson says the EC must listen to wise counsel and stop in its tracks.

“Initial (IPAC) meetings to which NDC was invited did not materialize only for the party to be invited in August 2022 that this proposed CI was ready to be presented to Parliament. In other words, the NDC had been completely excluded from the processes of preparing such an important CI to Parliament.

He further explained that the development breeds mistrust can undermine democracy, and threatens peace and security.

According to Dr Ato Forson, recent happenings show that the Electoral Commission may be plotting to rig the next election for the NPP.

He says a recent national security strategy document should guide the EC to tarry slowly before it plunges the country into violence.
