The Electoral Commission, EC says it is impossible for anyone to manipulate the 2020 elections.
According to the EC, the processes put in place for the conduct of the 2020 elections are so stringent that no one can manipulate the polls.
Speaking at the launch of the 2020 Agent of Peace Campaign by the Church of Pentecost in Accra, EC boss Jean Mensa said political parties must join the commission to educate citizens on the activities of the EC.
“Though the impression is often created that the EC takes decisions on its own, this is not the case. There is a tendency for citizens to believe that the Electoral Commission can manipulate the elections, I am here to announce that this is impossible. Political parties, therefore, must join hands with us to educate the citizens on the operations and activities of the EC.”
Meanwhile, Dr Serebour Quaicoe, Director of Elections at the EC said as at September 25 they have identified 17,000 missing names from the provisional register.
He said they are working to include all the missing names in the register.
According to him, after the exhibition exercise, they will have one month to rectify all the anomalies.
Speaking on the court order for the EC to restore the name of the NDC’s Parliamentary Candidate for Cape Coast Dr Kwamina Minta Nyarku in the register, he said the commission will soon meet to take a decision on the court’s ruling.
The exhibition exercise ended yesterday Sunday, September 27, 2020.
The exercise, which began on September 18 in over thirty thousand exhibition centres across the country was originally expected to end on Friday, September 25.
However, the deadline was extended to September 27, to ensure greater participation, following reports of low turnout at some exhibition centres.
Voters may verify their registration details by visiting their exhibition centres or by sending their Voter ID Numbers to the shortcode 1422.
