Ghana: Electoral body suspends voter registration exercise

The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana has suspended the on-going “continuous registration of voters” “pending a thorough discussion of the matter with IPAC”.

The decision comes after the major political parties, including the NPP, NDC, CPP, PNC and the PPP raised concerns about the registration exercise, claiming they were not consulted before the body carried out the exercise. A pressure group “Let My Vote Count” had earlier raised reservations about the exercise.

Below is the full statement:

19th May, 2015

Continuous registration of voters put on hold

The chairman of the Electoral Commission has directed that though continuous registration of voters is a facility under the Law, the formal resumption of the registration must be put on hold pending a thorough discussion of the matter with IPAC.

All district officers of the commission and the general public are to take note of this directive and comply.

Christian Owusu Parry
Ag. Director, Public Affairs
For: Chairman
