Last weekend, the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana wrapped up the registration of biometric voters.
The Acting Director of Public Affairs of the Electoral Commission, Mr. Christian Owusu-Parry, disclosed in a signed statement which was copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra that the mop up exercise for biometrics registration was meant to give the qualified applicants an opportunity to register as voters. It was also said in the statement, as reported by GhanaWeb, that the weekend exercise was dedicated to those who were not able to register during the 40-day registration exercise due to the operational difficulties.
Mr. Owusu-Parry’s statement strongly appealed that qualified applicants near the registration centres should take advantage of the opportunity of registering.
The Electoral Commission also advised that those who had already registered should not enroll themselves again to avoid double registration.
“All cases of double registrations will be detected and the culprits will be dealt with in accordance with law,” the Electoral Commission affirmed.
