EC Forum on Voters’ Register: NPP 1st political party to make presentation

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) became the first political party to make a presentation at an ongoing stakeholders’ forum on Ghana’s voters’ register.

The party – represented by former Chairman Peter Mac Manu – was, however, the second body to make a delivery at the two-day forum being held at the Alisa Hotel in Accra.

The Ghana Institute of Public Policy Options (GIPPO) represented by its Chief Policy Analyst, Dr Charles Wereko-Brobby, was the first to make a presentation.

Mr Mac Manu emphasized that the current register is flawed with persons whose photographs are unrecognizable, minors and those whose particulars are questionable.

He stated, for example, that there are 4,620 persons who were photoshopped into the register.

Asked how much it will cost in compiling a new one, the former NPP chairman said it will cost $7 per adult.

The NPP was followed by IMANI-Ghana, a policy think-tank.
