A number of pro-opposition groups are demonstrating in Kumasi, Ashanti Regional Capital, to press home demands for the implementation of some electoral reforms that will rid the voters’ register of ghost names.
The demonstration, dubbed “Baamu Yadda” , to wit “we will not agree”, is aimed at getting the EC to validate the voters’ register for the November polls as suggested by the Justice VCRAC Crabbe panel.
Convener for the Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVCA) group, David Asante prior to the demonstration, they will replicate the exercise across the country, until the EC heeds to their demands.
“We find it very unhealthy for our democracy especially coming from the body that is mandated to manage our Electoral affairs in this country…We will not agree, EC must clean the voters register through the validation process to present a credible voters register for Ghanaians to have a peaceful election,...This is just one of the numerous and countless activities we are going to roll out to compel the Electoral Commission to sit up and do what is acceptable prior to the general elections in November…," he said.
