17k names missing from the provisional voters register – EC

The Electoral Commission says it has identified 17,000 missing names from the provisional register compiled earlier this year.

Dr Serebour Quaicoe, Director of Elections at the EC said as at yesterday September 25, they had identified 17,000 missing names from the provisional register.

He said the Commission is working to include all the missing names in the register.

According to him, after the exhibition exercise, they will have one month to rectify all the anomalies.

Speaking on TV3 on the court order for the EC to restore the name of the NDC’s Parliamentary Candidate for Cape Coast Dr Kwamina Minta Nyarku in the register, he said the commission will soon meet to take a decision on the court’s ruling.

The Electoral Commission has announced an extension of the voter exhibition exercise.

The exercise was expected to end on Friday, September 25 but it will now end on Sunday, September 27, 2020.

The extension became necessary as the process has been characterized by some challenges.

The EC in a statement said: “The Commission is of the view that this extension will allow even more stakeholders to check and verify their voter registration details,”

It believes the extension will be “instrumental for the achievement of a clean and credible voters register.”

The Commission further urged the public “to take advantage of the extension by making time to verify their registration details.”
