NDC’s Director of Elections Elvis Afriyie Ankrah says the challenges that have come up in the voter register is a total mess.
He says the challenges are widespread and serious to affect the credibility of the polls in December.
There have been widespread complaints about some missing names in the ongoing voter exhibition exercise.
Mr Ankrah says this has never happened before and the attitude of the EC is not helping matters.
“This is a total mess, Krowor Constituency alone we have 2,487 duplicate IDs and that is just eight polling station and this is chaotic and you see the whole attitude of the EC that this is normal, we have had several registration exercise and this has never happened”.
The NDC has expressed concerns over some names being omitted and this has resulted in John Dramani Mahama cutting short his tour of the Bono Region to address the challenge.
Director of Electoral Services at the EC Dr. Serebour Quaicoe says the challenges with the voter register are normal and not as serious as the NDC claims.
He asked the party to call for an IPAC meeting so they discuss all the issues.
The NDC had earlier accused EC of deliberately deleting names of some people from the voters register in their stronghold.
The EC has denied the claims and said there work with machines and some of these challenges are normal.
The EC began the voter exhibition exercise on September 18, 2020.
The voter register exhibition exercise which will last for 8 days will afford registered voters the opportunity to match their details against what has been captured in the register and to confirm the registrations.
The EC has also introduced a mobile service through which registered voters can equally check and confirm their registration.
Voters using this service are to send their voter ID Numbers to the shortcode 1422 for their details, but can only effect corrections where necessary at the EC’s respective district offices.
