Despite the disagreements the NDC has with the Electoral Commission, it has called on Ghanaians to partake in the voters' registration.

Former President, John Dramani Mahama, asked Ghanaians to participate in any form of voter registration exercise undertaken by the EC in the build-up to the 2020 general elections.

Addressing a crowd of people and chiefs, Mahama noted that the NDC's disagreement with the EC will not undermine the democracy of the country should the Supreme Court not rule in their favor.
