Published on

The Electoral Commission (EC) has finally set Saturday, 18 April 2020 as the date for the compilation of the new voters’ register in spite of protests by the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the Convention People’s Party (CPP).

The Deputy Chairperson of the EC in-charge of Operations, Samuel Tettey, who announced this, said the exercise would be completed by 30 May 2020, after which an exhibition exercise would be conducted from 15-28 August 2020.

According to a Daily Graphic report on Thursday, 23 January 2020, the EC plans to deploy eight-thousand registration devices for the exercise which will be rolled out at thirty-two thousand polling centres nationwide.

The EC also intends to adopt a system where four polling stations will be merged to form a cluster in order to ease the process.

The exercise is expected to last for fourty-three days.
