EC to meet political parties ahead of voter registration

The Electoral Commission (EC) is to meet all political parties before the commencement of next month’s voter registration exercise.

The meeting is aimed at reaching a consensus with the parties before the exercise begins.

The General Secretaries of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the New Patriotic Party (NPP), the Conventions People’s Party (CPP) and the People’s National Convention (PNC) have requested an emergency meeting with the EC to outline modalities for the upcoming exercise.

The Director of Public Affairs at the EC, Christian Owusu Parry, in an interview with Citi News disclosed that the Commission had already planned to organize an Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting and the date will be communicated in due course.

Regarding the procedures for registration, Mr. Owusu Parry indicated that nothing has changed.

He added that the parties will be made to present their agents at the various registration centers “so that they can observe the procedure.”

The opening of the voters register is to allow Ghanaians who turned 18 since the 2012 general elections and adults who could not register in previous registration exercises to register.
