The Electoral Commission (EC) says it will begin compiling the new voters’ register in April this year for the December general election.

The Director of Electoral Services, Dr Serebour Quaicoe is hopeful the exercise will be completed by the end of May.

He indicated that the EC’s programme is on track.

“Our programme is still on track. We’re doing consultations but our activities are on track. We have drawn our programme with our timeline that we are going to compile the voters’ register and complete by end of May. Do our exhibition by end of August,” he said in an interview on GBC’s current affairs programme, ‘Behind the News’, in Accra.

The EC has said it was planning to procure a new biometric voter management system (BVMS) and compile a new voters register since the current system is outdated.

While some 13 political parties led by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have thrown their weight behind the EC for the new BVMS and compilation of the new register, the Inter-Party Resistance Against the New Voters Register made up of six political parties led by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has kicked against it.
