Limited Voter Registration: Majority Leader Urges EC to Prepare Contingency Plan for Voter Registration

Afenyo-Markin, after visiting a voter registration centre, highlighted the importance of the EC having a contingency plan to ensure every eligible voter is registered before the exercise concludes.

The Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, has urged the Electoral Commission (EC) to develop a backup plan to address the numerous challenges affecting the limited voter registration exercise. The ongoing registration process has been plagued by various issues, resulting in many eligible voters being unable to complete their registration.

Afenyo-Markin, after visiting a voter registration centre, highlighted the importance of the EC having a contingency plan to ensure every eligible voter is registered before the exercise concludes. He emphasized that delays and technical problems must be addressed promptly to avoid disenfranchisement.

“The Electoral Commission must improve on its system of registration. Obviously, if we are all talking about network failures, then I am not sure that they will be able to complete on schedule. The frustrations and the delays must be addressed,” he said.

“So I am urging the Electoral Commission to ensure that they have a backup system because as it is, the frustrations are one too many. And I would encourage the Electoral Commission to live up to expectations,” the Effutu MP said.
