Opposition political parties have demonstrated against the compilation of a new voters’ register.
The protest, named ‘wɔkpɛnɛɛ’, meaning we won’t agree, started in the early hours of 7:00 a.m. at Kawukudi park at Nima, a suburb of Accra, and ended it at EC premises.
While the parties argue that there is no need for a new voters’ register, the Commission, insists the current register is not fit for purpose.
The EC believes the new voters’ register with some enhanced security features will help to better ensure a smooth exercise on December 7.
The parties, Inter-party Resistance against the New Voters’ Register, demonstrated through the streets of Accra to mount further pressure on the Electoral Commission to rescind its decision to compile a new voters’ register.
