The Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) has extended the ongoing voter exhibition exercise by two more days.
The exercise, which began on Friday, September 18, was scheduled to end on Friday, September 25.
“As part of efforts to serve the interest of its stakeholders and promote greater participation and inclusion, the Electoral Commission has extended the Voters Exhibition Exercise from Friday 25th September to Sunday 27th September, 2020,” the EC said in a statement issued on Thursday, September 24.
“The Commission is of the view that this extension will allow even more stakeholders to check and verify their voter registration details.
“This is instrumental for the achievement of a clean and credible voters register.”
The largest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), had raised concerns with the ongoing exercise, particularly as regards the missing of names of their supporters.
The party’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, and his running mate, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, suspended their campaigns on Tuesday to address this issue, which they claim could engender chaos on election day.
But the EC has dismissed this allegation as false and assured that it is on course to deliver another successful elections.
“We assure the Public that the Commission is working to ensure that the margin of error with the Voters Register is negligible. We are confident that at the end of the process, we will bequeath the nation with a Register that reflects truth and integrity, a Register that is credible and comprises eligible Ghanaians only,” the Commission said in an earlier statement on Wednesday, September 23.
