The Electoral Commission has refuted claims by the Minority in Parliament that the commission is knocking off over 6,000 centers for the upcoming voters’ registration exercise.

Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu after a meeting between the special budget committee and the chairperson of the EC Jean Mensa told the media that the EC plans to cut down on registration centers.

But in a reaction, the deputy EC commissioner in charge of administration Dr. Bossman Asare said the claim by the minority is inaccurate.

According to him, the Commission is only rolling out the registration exercise in phases.

Dr. Asare explained that registration officials will be moving from a cluster of registration centers to others within a particular period.

The former head of the political science department of the University of Ghana said every registration center will be attended to.

“We are not reducing the existing registration centers what we are doing is that the registration is in phases. When we begin phase one we are going to tackle 20 per cent of the registration centers, phase two 20 per cent, phase three 20 per cent, phase four 20 per cent and phase five 20 per cent and that will give us 100 per cent…so nothing has changed.”
