The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has entreated all who have attained the voting age to take part in the limited voter registration exercise from Thursday, April 28 to Sunday May 8.

The registration is the first process towards participating in the November 7, general election, “to bring our dear nation prosperity and break the unending hardship. Beyond the civic duty to register and vote, each and every one should as a matter of urgency be part of the ‘change-process”, which starts with the  registration exercise.

“Get-out, register, vote and be part of the many who are clamouring for Good governance, economic and social prosperity, business-friendly environment, employment, safeguarding the public purse as well as political integrity and accountability,” Mr John Boadu, NPP Acting General Secretary said in a statement issued in Accra and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra.

The Electoral Commission (EC) should also put the necessary measures in place to ensure that the problems encountered during the 2014 limited registration exercise do not re-occur.

The NPP however called on the EC to ensure that all equipment for the exercise function well; create adequate publicity platform for the exercise and put in place measures to avoid shortages of registration materials - challenge forms and guarantee forms.

The party also asked the EC to ensure that persons with NHIS cards are not registered; avoid interference by unauthorised persons and any arbitrary change of registration centres.

The nationwide limited voter registration exercise is to among other things enable voters who have attained 18 years and those who qualified but were unable to register in the last registration exercise to do so.
