The National Democratic Congress together with the other opposition parties in the country have decided to petition the ECOWAS about the compilation of the new voters' register.

The NDC and six other political parties, constituting the Inter-Party Resistance Against New Voters' Register (IPRAN), believe the EC's decision to compile a new electoral roll is wrong considering the times in which we find ourselves.

The other political parties include the Peoples National Convention (PNC), All Peoples Congress (APC), United Freedom Party (UFP), the EGLE Party and the United Progressive Party (UPP).

The political parties hold the strong view that the current Ghanaian voters' register is credible, reliable, tested, and could be used for the upcoming 2020 elections.

“This position has been confirmed by the EC itself. The concerns raised by the EC can be addressed by upgrading the current register and not compiling a new register,” the petitioners said.

Meanwhile, the EC says the current register is bloated and not credible for the upcoming elections.
