The Electoral Commission has confirmed postponing the second phase of the Limited Voters Registration and the planned Continuous Voters Registration at all the District Offices of the commission to next year.
Per reported by Myjoyonline.com sighted by YEN.com.gh, it further stated that the modalities and the times would be announced after the Commission has consulted with the political parties as required by law.
Consequently, it said there would be the Exhibition of the 2016 and 2018 Provisional Voters Register (PVR), from 25th- 31st October 2018 at all the polling stations of carved out areas for the referendum.
The exhibition will start at 7:00 am and end at 6:00 pm each day, including Saturdays and Sundays.
The Chairperson of the EC, Mrs Jean Mensa, who announced at a meeting convened under the umbrella of the Inter- Party Advisory Committee (IPAC), said the Commission would set up the Representative of the People Amend-mt Act (ROPAA) working group, which would be made up of representatives of registered political parties and civil society organizations.
The working group, she indicated, would undertake nationwide consultation with other relevant parties and would be tasked with the responsibility of defining the modalities, scope and timelines for the implementation of ROPAA.
In attendance were all registered political parties, including the two major ones- the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC).
All the parties were represented by three representatives. Also in attendance were representations from some donor agencies and selected civil society organisations.
Following the postponement, she has encouraged the stakeholders to bring their concerns and suggestions to the Commission for the timely resolution as this will engender cooperation and harmony among all the stakeholders.
The Chairperson of the Commission used the occasion to outline the vision and the operational activities of the Commission for the rest of the year.
