The National Democratic Congress (NDC) yesterday walked out of a meeting which was called by the Electoral Commission (EC) for technical persons of the political parties and the commission to plan for a new voters register.

The NDC argued that the letter inviting them to the meeting did not have an agenda, but when they arrived at the meeting, it was made clear to them that the decision to have a new voters register, had already been made.

They said the EC therefore went ahead to discuss with them modalities on how to compile a new voters’ register which they have opposed.

To them, since a decision on what they were going to discuss had already been made, there was no need to be part of the meeting.

In support of the NDC’s walkout were representatives of two other political parties, the People’s National Convention (PNC) and the United Front Party (UFP).

According to them, their understanding was that the meeting was to discuss outstanding issues on whether or not a new register was needed.

Despite the action by the NDC, PNC and UFP, the meeting continued with representatives of the other political parties.
