Leader of the Alternative Force for Action (AFA), Dr. Sam Ankrah has called on the Electoral Commission to draw lessons from the errors committed during the current registration process and implement measures to prevent their recurrence in the future.

The Independent Presidential Hopeful, stressed on the significance of guaranteeing a seamless and effective registration procedure to uphold the integrity of the electoral system. He ads his voice to the many political bigwigs who seem to have found issues with the ongoing Voters Registration process across the country.

According to him, he has observed that the registration procedure has encountered difficulties, including technical malfunctions and lengthy waits, which have led to public frustration and prompted doubts about the authenticity of the exercise. He therefore implored the Electoral Commission to swiftly resolve these shortcomings and establish measures to prevent their recurrence in future elections.

Additionally, Dr. Ankrah emphasised the need of transparency and accountability in the electoral process, encouraging the Electoral Commission to be receptive and responsive to public criticism and concerns. He urged all stakeholders, including political parties, civil society organizations, and the media, to closely oversee the registration process and ensure its fairness and transparency.

He further advised that the Electoral Commission acts in a straightforward manner, analyse previous errors, attentively consider public concerns, and implement resolute measures to guarantee a seamless and trustworthy registration procedure. This he believes can render the voting Commission the maintenance of the faith and confidence of the Ghanaian people in the voting system and help strengthen democracy in the country.

The Limited Voters Registration exercise rolled out by the Electoral Commission commenced on May 7 and is expected to come to a closure on May 27, 2024 across the country.
