The Electoral Commission (EC) has announced that the voters’ registration exercise will commence on June 30.
A letter to the political parties signed by Deputy EC Chairperson in charge of Corporate Services, Dr. Bossman Eric Asare, on behalf of the Commissioner, Jean Mensa, said “this letter comes to inform you that the 2020 Voters Registration Exercise has been scheduled to commence on Tuesday the 3th of June 2020.”
It added that “the registration will be held at all registration centres and district offices of the Electoral Commission throughout the country.”
The EC asked the parties to contact Dr. Bossman should there be the need to make enquiries.
The EC’s decision follows the passage of the C.I. 126 in Parliament needed to regulate the upcoming general election in December.
The EC is currently preparing itself to explain to the Supreme Court why it has removed the old voters ID cards as part of the requirement for the compilation of a new voters’ register.
