Pilot Biometric Exercise Successful - EC

The Electoral Commission (EC) has said the just ended biometric registration pilot exercise was successful. The nationwide exercise was piloted in some selected districts to enable the EC establish challenges that may arise during the major one in March. The ECs Public Relations Officer, Christian Owusu Parry, said the identified challenges will be addressed ahead of the major registration exercise next month. In an interview with Citi News, Mr. Parry said: I think what has to be done is that we need to intensify our public education on what information will be required of the applicant. But it looks like between now and 24th of March is a long enough time for us to do some very effective education so that voters in all the regions would know what they would be required to provide at the registration centre.
