Limited Voter Registration: Address challenges to redeem your image – NDC to EC


The ongoing limited voter registration exercise has encountered various challenges, prompting the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to call on the Electoral Commission (EC) to address these issues. Stakeholders have expressed concerns over non-functional equipment and network issues, highlighting the need for immediate action to restore confidence in the electoral process.

Mustapha Gbande, Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, stressed the importance of resolving these challenges to ensure a smooth and fair registration process. In an interview with Citi News, Gbande emphasized the expectation that the EC, as the authority responsible for registration, should prioritize improving the availability and functionality of registration systems and machines.

Gbande voiced concerns over incidents of violence reportedly involving NPP parliamentary candidates in some areas, calling for appropriate measures to maintain peace and security at registration centers. He urged transparency and accountability in handling security issues, stating, “If the police have withdrawn and they want us to take our security into our own hands, they should let us know so that we can actively prepare for some of these atrocities.”

Despite the challenges, the Electoral Commission has made progress in registering eligible Ghanaians, with data revealing that 143,014 individuals have been registered as of Day 4 of the exercise. The commission aims to register 623,000 persons by the end of the three-week period, highlighting the significance of addressing challenges swiftly to ensure the success of the registration process.
