President Kufuor checks his name in Voters' Register
Accra, Oct.13, GNA - President John Agyekum Kufuor on Wednesday checked his name in the Voters' Register now on exhibition nation-wide. He checked his name at a temporary booth Centre at the Airport Residential Area in the Ayawaso Wuogon Constituency in the Greater Accra Region.
The five-day exhibition of the Voters' Register began nation-wide on Tuesday to enable registered voters to crosscheck their details and where appropriate make the necessary corrections.
Ms Lawrencia Kpatakpa, Greater Accra Regional Director of the Electoral Commission, had earlier told the GNA that the exhibition exercise was offering potential registered voters the opportunity to ascertain whether the particulars on their voters' ID cards corresponded to the details in the register.
She said voters could also use the exhibition exercise to make claims for correction of any error in their particulars. Voters whose names had been omitted could make claims for their names to be included in the register, by showing evidence of registration, Ms Kpatakpa said. The exhibition would also afford people the opportunity to challenge the inclusion of the name of any person if they had valid reasons to believe that he or she was not qualified to register as a voter.
She appealed to all to participate in the exercise to check their data within the five-day period.
