Suspended member of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobby has described as 'needless' the decision by some political parties and pressure groups to compel the Electoral Commission (EC) to compile a new voter’s register for this year’s general elections.

According to him, any attempt to resort to the law court to force the Commission to compile a new electoral roll will be an exercise in futility.

Dr. Wereko-Brobby's comment is in reaction to a threat by pressure group, Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVCA) to seek legal redress if the Commission fails to heed to their call.

The EC’s decision to keep the current register is consistent with a report by a five-member committee it set up to deliberate proposals for a new voters’ register.

The committee among other things says it "finds the arguments for a new register unconvincing and therefore does not recommend the replacement of the current voters’ register."

But National Coordinator of the pressure group, David Asante insists the current register is flawed hence will use all legal means to have it changed.

Speaking on Asempa FM Monday, Dr. Wereko-Brobby said the pressure group has no locus to demand the EC change the register.

In his view, the Commission is an independent body therefore no group or political party can compel it to do its bidden.

“All the people making noise for a new voters register have no locus; they should shut up” he fumed.

Tarzan as he is popularly called opined that not even the Inter Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) can put pressure on the EC to change the register.

Dr. Wereko-Brobby urged pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP) pressure groups like Let My Vote Count Alliance to stop the "empty noise" and concentrate on helping the party win power.
