The leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused the Electoral Commission of unfair tactics in the limited registration exercise which is set to begin June 7.

According to the opposition party, they have not concluded discussions at IPAC meetings with the EC on the limited registration exercise, so they are surprised the electoral body has decided to carry out the registration exercise.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia explained that the Electoral Commission has taken the law into their own hands and are doing things their way.

"....i fear some people may take the electoral processes to court to challenge the actions of the Electoral Commission....

"....if Ghanaians do not rise up against the EC’s behavior, the country may be thrown into a state of anarchy ahead of the 2020 elections," he added.

The Electoral Commission (EC) has announced that it will compromise and conduct the limited voter registration exercise in selected difficult areas in addition to its district offices.

The exercise, which is to take place between Friday, June 7 and Thursday, June 27 2019, was initially planned to happen only at the district offices of the Electoral Commission.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) resisted the initial plan going as far as accusing the EC of scheming to disenfranchise voters.

The NDC wanted the EC to decentralize the exercise up to the electoral area levels instead of just the 260 districts offices.
