A founder-member of Ghana’s main opposition political party, has urged the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to tell its members and affiliate groups clamouring for a new register of voters, despite the Electoral Commission’s decision to the contrary, to "shut up!"
Leaders of pro-NPP pressure group, Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVCA), which has been at the forefront advocating for a new register ahead of the November polls, have said in many media interviews that they intend fighting the EC’s decision in court.
In one such interview, David Asante hinted Starr News that the EC should be prepared for more protests if it does not rescind its decision.
They have also resolved to embark on a series of street protests to compel the EC to compile a new register.
The LMVCA and the NPP with Nana Akuffo-Addo and Dr Bawumia have argued that the 2012 register has about 76,000 foreign mainly, Togolese names on it and bloated by two million names.
Both groups have said anything short of a new register would put the elections into disrepute and possibly plunge the country into mayhem.
