The Upper East Regional Communication Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Jonathan Abdallah Salifu, has stated that the Electoral Commission (EC) must revise its decision on carrying out the limited voter registration exercise at its district and municipal offices.

According to Mr. Abdallah Salifu, the first two days of the exercise have exposed the very challenges the NDC outlined earlier before the commencement of the exercise.

He said any attempt by the EC to continue with the exercise in its current form would disenfranchise a lot of people.

He revealed this when he spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio`s Daybreak Upper East show about the ongoing limited voter registration exercise.

He noted that apart from the issue of network and the difficulty presented to registrants in traveling to the registration centers, the machines in question used by the EC are also posing a challenge.

This he noted is slowing down the process and worsening the plight of registrants.

“In Tempane, for instance, on the first day of registration, there was no show until a few minutes past 2 p.m. because the machines were down completely and they had to go back to Bolga to replace them,” he stated.

He added that “Some complained of network and technical issues, and with this, when someone comes to register and the process is stalled, the person will go away because it is a working day, and people will end up not registering”.

This, he observed, is a deliberate attempt by the EC to disenfranchise people due to the challenges it poses to registrants.
