NDC urges all eligible voters to register despite suit against EC


The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is urging all eligible voters to take advantage of the limited voter registration exercise to have their names in the electoral roll.

This was contained in a statement signed by National Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketia to announce a change in date of the Minority’s avowed protest against the Governor of the Bank of Ghana.

In confirming the new date, the NDC said the decision was necessitated by the limited voter registration, which starts on Tuesday, September 12 to Monday, October 2.

As a result, the Minority has decided to stage the demonstration on Tuesday, October 3.

It is after this decision that the NDC urged all eligible voters to partake in the exercise.

“By this change, we are also urging all eligible voters to avail themselves of the opportunity to get their names onto the Voters Register,” Mr Asiedu Nketia stated.

It added that after the registration exercise, “we shall mobilise our teeming supporters to join in the demonstration against the rot and corruption that has eaten deep into the management of the central bank”.

The NDC a few days ago led some four political parties to file a suit at the Supreme Court against the decision by the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) to have the registration at its district offices.

Meanwhile, former President John Dramani Mahama has expressed anger over the Supreme Court’s delay in scheduling a hearing for an injunction application filed by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and four other political parties against the Electoral Commission (EC) on the limited voter registration.
