The Electoral Commission (EC) has refuted claims by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) that it has deliberately removed the names of NDC members from the voter register.
In a statement, the EC insisted that “at every point, we have provided factual, accurate and evidence-based information to our stakeholders on voter statistics per region, district, gender, age among others.”
The EC also said it has been transparent with the data from the voter registration exercise which saw 16.9 persons register to vote.
It thus said it would be “a paradox to suggest that the same Commission now seeks to remove persons from the voters’ register.”
“Had that been the agenda of the Commission, it would not have given detailed information to stakeholders throughout the registration process. We assure the general public that these allegations are unfounded.”
The Commission further reminded persons making such allegations that the exhibition process is to allow stakeholders “to unearth problems with the register for the purpose of fixing it.”
