There was no decision for a new electoral register to be compiled ahead of the 2020 general elections at the latest Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting held between the Electoral Commission and the various political parties on Wednesday, 27 March 2019, the General Secretary of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has said.

The election management body recently said it will compile a new voter roll ahead of the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections.

It made the announcement via a statement after the IPAC meeting.

However, Mr Asiedu Nketia, in a statement, said: “At the meeting under reference, the EC presented for discussion its programmed activities for 2019. While the press release issued by the EC covers aspects of the ensuing discussions, we note that there are portions that do not represent the true reflection of what transpired at the IPAC meeting.

“We take particular notice of a portion of the EC release which states as follows: ‘The Commission will compile a new voter’s register ahead of the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections.’

“We wish to state emphatically and without any fear of contradiction that no decision was taken on this matter. In fact, the compilation of a new voters register was only mentioned in passing by the EC during the discussion on limited registration. There certainly was no extensive deliberations on this particular matter.

“The NDC holds the view that a matter as important as the compilation of a new voters register has to be discussed in a manner that will ensure that every aspect and the implication of its implementation are thoroughly discussed to the satisfaction of all stakeholders and in accordance with due process, time-tested rule, procedures and conventions before a decision is made. A matter as delicate as such has to be discussed thoroughly and all related consequences, ramifications considered before arriving at a decision.”
