Limited Registration Exercise: EC ready to bus eligible Ghanaians to registration centres

The Electoral Commission of Ghana has disclosed that it is willing to transport Ghanaians who want to take part in the upcoming limited registration exercise to their various districts.

According to the Deputy EC Chair, Dr Bossman Asare, who was speaking in an interview on Citi Eyewitness news, “if the Commission deems it fit that there are some people who have been identified and where they are staying is very far and they need to be supported to be able to register, the Commission can take that decision and within our laws we are allowed to do that”.

The NDC has not hidden its concerns about the conduct of the electoral body in recent times and has openly criticised the EC over some of its decisions the party disagrees with.

A few days ago, the party kicked against limiting an upcoming limited registration exercise to the district level describing it as distasteful following the EC’s decision not to heed to the NDC’s request for decentralisation of the process.

General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, strongly believes the Chairperson of the Commission, Jean Mensa, harbours some prejudice against them.
