EC Warns Opening A New Voters' Register Would Be A Recipe For Disaster

Head of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei has revealed compiling a new voters' register stays a recipe to disaster arguing that considering the entrenched positions by the NDC and NPP could spark tensions in the country should the EC consider opening a new voters register.

Making her presentation at the stakeholders’ forum on the voters’ register at the Alisa Hotel , Charlotte Osei said she is in support of IDEG’s proposal in cleansing the register through the means of auditing.

The EC boss also outlined several issues such as; Timelines, Social stability, cost, lack of a proper identification system and things that must be done differently to prevent a carry-over of the current problems in the voters’ register.

She has therefore called on the various political parties to contribute their quota to enable Ghana arrive at having a credible voters’ register ahead of next year’s elections.
