Only a corrupt government will justify EC's budget for new voters' register – Sammy Gyamfi

National Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has described as corrupt every supporter of the Electoral Commission's decision to compile a new voter' register.

He said the amount of money being 'injected' into the compilation of a new register is a bit on the high side, therefore whoever backs it is 'corrupt'.

The EC's decision has generated lots of controversies with the ruling government advocating in favour of it and the NDC and other opposition parties, against.

The Inter-Party Resistance Against New Voter Register (IPRAN) of which the NDC is part of, has sworn to resist the EC's decision insisting that there is nothing wrong with the current register.

On Thursday, the EC and its Eminent Advisory Committee (EAC), as well as the Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) and other stakeholders, held a meeting to bring an end to the debate but it ended inconclusively.

Speaking to this on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', Sammy Gyamfi said they are still not convinced.

He further added that "it is only a corrupt government and people who will justify the budget put forward by the EC for a new voters' register."
