The Electoral Commission (EC), has registered a total of 1,616 voters onto the voter`s register on the first two days of the ongoing limited voter registration exercise in the Upper East Region.

This comprised 544 voters on the first day and 1072 voters on the second day of the exercise.

The Bongo District recorded the highest number of registrants on the first two days of the exercise, with 107 and 138, respectively.

The Builsa South District, on the other hand, recorded the lowest number of registrants on the first two days, with three and 17 registrants, respectively.

Three people had their registration challenged, which would be determined by the District Registration Review committee comprising representatives of the EC, political parties, the Ghana Education Service and Police service and the Traditional council.

However,the exercise is not without challenges, as the Upper East Regional Director of the Electoral Commission, Mr. William Obeng Adarkwah, admitted when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Daybreak Upper East show with Mark Smith.

“We admit that we know our territory, and we know some of the challenges that could confront a lot of people who would have loved to register”, he stated.

“We will urge opinion leaders, political parties, and anybody so patriotic to assist in certain areas where they think distances are too challenging for prospective registrants to be helped in terms of transport”, he added.

Aside these, Mr. Adarkwah said the exercise generally has been peaceful and smooth.
