Limited registration exercise has been successful despite minor challenges - EC
Communications Officer of the Electoral Commission (EC), Sylvia Annor, has said despite minor challenges in the just ended limited registration exercise, everything went on peacefully and smoothly.
She described the exercise as very successful nationwide since it was incident-free throughout the registration centers in the various constituencies.
She revealed that the Electoral Commission (EC) had targeted 5000 people during the exercise, but they ended up registering over 1.2 million after the exercise.
“We are very happy the limited registration exercise was very successful because we were able to exceed our target in the process,” Sylvia Annor exclusively told Kwame Tutu on Anopa Nkomo on Accra based Kingdom FM 107.7
She said the exercise forms part of the Commission’s preparations towards the conduct of the 2019 district level election of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs).
The nationwide exercise, which was carried out in 6,000 centers in the country lasted for 10 days.
The exercise, according to the election management body, will offer Ghanaians, who turned 18 since the last registration exercise as well as those who for one reason or the other have never registered, the opportunity to be registered as voters.
