New voters’ register demo: More heat coming – Asiedu Nketia hints

General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has dropped a hint that more agitations are in the offing as far as their rejection of the compilation of a new voters’ register is concerned.

He disclosed in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the other smaller political parties are going to pile up more pressure to protest the Electoral Commission’s (EC’s) decision for a new voter’s register.

Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen, General Mosquito disclosed that the party’s decision was so because the EC was being deliberately recalcitrant to rescind its decision to compile a new register.

However, Asiedu Nketia said the EC had acted in bad faith when it announced a date for the commencement of the new voters’ registration exercise.

“The EC has credibility deficit but I don’t know whether it’s borne out of mischief, incompetence or corruption, and we are going to pull more heat” he stated.

Going forward, the NDC scribe said aside the protests, they will engage in other lawful means to get their grievances addressed.

The only way for a free and fair election, Mr. Asiedu Nketia added, is for the EC to heed to their call and use the old register for the elections in December 2020.
