Ghana: Electoral Commission to Hold Pilot Biometric Registration

The Deputy Chairman in charge of finance and administration at Ghana’s Electoral Commission (EC), David Azey Adeenze-Kangah, says the EC will hold a pilot biometric registration exercise across the country.

He said this was to help the Commission deal with any challenges that might arise before the scheduled date for the biometric registration.

The deputy chairman added that training had started for about 15,000 election officers who would conduct the exercise during the biometric registration in all 23,000 polling stations across the country.

Ghana goes to the polls on 7th December 2012 to elect a president in what many experts say will be a key test to the country’s burgeoning democracy.
