The Inter-Party Resistance in opposition to the New Voter Register (IPRAN) is threatening to disrupt the mass registration workout should the Electoral Commission (EC) progress with its strategy to compile a new voters’ register.
In accordance to the group, the election administration overall body is employing crude Machiavellian methods with its program to compile a new roll forward of this year’s common elections.
At a push meeting on Tuesday, 26 May possibly 2020, IPRAN described as disappointing the EC’s go to amend C.I 91 Section 1(3), to exclude the current voter ID card as section of the key identification documents required by an suitable voter to go by with registration forward of the December polls.
“It is disappointing and disheartening to observe that that was the initial time political functions in the Resistance had heard about this blatant try at political bigotry by the EC to exclude shut to about 10 million qualified voters from registering to vote in this year’s standard elections,” said Bernard Mornah, spokesperson for the team.
Mr Mornah argued that each the Ghana Card and the passport are fraught with illegalities and cannot be utilized for the compilation of the new register.
”We have read some of the deceptive and misleading promises from the EC, ostensibly arguing that the exclusion of the present voter ID card, was driven by a ‘school of thought’ that some foreigners may well be carrying the voter ID card and some other people who registered in 2012 with NHIS Card could continue to be on the register.
“This argument is preposterous and repulsive to say the the very least as the so named trusted identification paperwork (Ghana Card and Passport) are also fraught with exact allegation of foreigners’ infiltration and in some scenarios foreigners possessing similar have been arrested as reported”
Bernard Mornah even so questioned religious team and civil society organisations to converse in opposition to the advancement to avert a attainable implosion.
