Meanwhile, the EC has inaugurated a voter registration adjudication committee to help expunge names of multiple registrants from the voter’s register.

The 16- member multi-stakeholder committee which was inaugurated by the Chairperson of the EC, Mrs. Jean Mensa will be required to manually determine the eligibility of persons who have been flagged for multiple registrations through the de-duplication process.
