National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has vowed to organise further protests after the electoral commission announced it decision to compile a new voters’ register.
He said his party and some other opposition parties who openly opposed and demonstrated against the compilation of a new register would soon intensify their protests.
According to Sammy Gyamfi, they would soon occupy the Electoral Commissioner’s offices and also stage a demonstration in Accra on a date that will be announced.
He also added that legal action against the electoral commission's management body is also being considered.
Gyamfi’s declaration is totally different from what the National Chairman of the NDC said on Tuesday after the demonstration which was held in Kumasi for the same purpose.
Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo said, the Inter-Party Resistance Against New Voters’ Register would suspend its protests.
Ofosu-Ampofo said the NDC and its allies in the coalition respect the constituents of the committee and that advised against it and would therefore, wait on their advice.
However, the EC said on Thursday it is going ahead to compile the new register from April 18 to May 30, 2020.
