The Electoral Fee suggests it could use the recent voters’ register for the December 2020 elections, if the coronavirus pandemic persists.
According to the Director of Standard Electoral Services at EC, Dr. Serebour Quaicoe, this would demand a cleansing of the register which would incorporate a validation exercise and a constrained registration work out for new voters.
“We are using all the precautions we have to consider, so if in two months it (coronavirus) fails (to subside) we may need to use the register but if you don’t go for validation it suggests your title could be deleted.”
“…and if we are speaking of the validation, it indicates people will even now have to occur in and that would signify human call will even now be there,” he advised Samson Lardi Anyenini on Newsfile, Saturday.
Dr Quaicoe, on the other hand, added that if the coronavirus, soon after two months is removed from the culture, the EC is self-confident it can compile the new voters’ register just before the December 2020 elections.
He mentioned that the EC by now has in spot PPEs and other required things for the new voters’ sign up compilation in the subsequent two months.
Dr. Quaicoe claimed all designs and researches are at present remaining finished in consultation with wellness professionals.
He defined that the Commission has the finest interest of the citizens at heart and would not make selections that will mar the wellbeing of Ghanaians.
“We would not make a determination when they (well being industry experts) have not advised us to do so. We want everybody to know that it is not that we are insensitive to the plight of the folks. Individually, I would not be comfy if any of my persons get contaminated, so we are having all the precautions we have to choose,” he additional.
