The Director of Elections Services at the Electoral Commission of Ghana, Dr. Serebour Quaicoe, has said the EC has done more than it is expected during the just ended Limited Registration exercise.
Speaking on GBC’s Uniiq FM Current Affairs programme, ‘Focus’, Dr. Serebour admitted that the exercise experienced some challenges which could not be avoided and that the EC is doing everything possible to resolve some of these issues.
According to him, 1.2 million people registered during the exercise.
Dr. Serebour noted that the exercise recorded a lot of deliberately multiple registrations in all the centres, and to him, some of these people are under police investigations.
“Pictures of the rest will be posted at the various registration centres to identify such perpetrators,” he said.
He expressed displeasure about some men and women in uniforms engaging in such ‘ungodly behavior’.
He then added that there is still a chance of provisional registration for those who could not register in the just ended exercise. He also mentioned that all those who have lost their cards would be allowed to do so in the appointed time.
Meanwhile, a member of the National Election Directorate for NDC, Anthony Ekpedzor, said the exercise was under serious challenges and that people experienced serious sleepless nights and congestion. He said the exercise needs to be done in the District levels to avoid such challenges.
The Greater Accra Regional Organiser for Convention People’s Party (CPP), Moses Yirimanbo, urged the two major political parties the NPP and the NDC to trust the Electoral Commission for them to work efficiently.
