NDC, others boycott EC’s New voters register meeting

Five political parties including the NDC have boycotted a meeting convened by the EC for a demonstration on a new voters register.

The other parties are the PNC, Egle party, APC and UFP. The EC invited the parties for a demonstration on the new system developed by some consultants .

The system will use telecommunication companies as the backbone to transmit 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary election results.

Addressing a news conference in Accra Deputy General Secretary of the NDC Peter Boamah Otokunor said the Jeane Mensah led administration is sidelining IPAC in preparations for elections 2020.

Peter Boamah Otokunor also questioned the motive for the composition of the advisory committee for the EC.

” She has now brought in new advisory commitee and we are asking what’s that commitee supposed to do? are they going to do the work of IPAC? or they are going to advice on something else.

” So that tells you that IPAC is being sidelined. She should provide us the necessary information to decide. As at now IPAC has not taken any decision, nobody has taken any decision to introduce a new register”.
