Oct. 31, GNA - The Electoral Commission (EC) has called on the New Patriotic
Party (NPP) to provide evidence of claims of a bloated voters register.
Mrs Charlotte Osei, EC Chairperson said the Commission is waiting for more documentary evidence from the NPP on the claims of the bloated register.
“We would look into the issues once they are provided,” she assured.
Speaking at a two-day stakeholders' forum on issues of whether or not Ghana needs a new register or cleanup of the existing one, Mrs Osei said on the case of a bloated register in the Ketu South Constituency, the EC is yet to receive a detailed documentary evidence, and would be glad to work on them once provided.
In the case of foreign nationals infiltrating the current register, and citing the Togolese register example, she said the EC has asked the Party to provide it with a comprehensive report, which should include names of the alleged cloned persons.
The current document submitted to it, she said, has no such thing.
