Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, a member of parliament for North Tongu, has organized a team to keep an eye on the Electoral Commission’s (EC) continuing limited voter registration campaign.
He emphasized that the group will make sure that everyone freshly turned 18-year-old in the constituency participates in the process in a tweet.
“Despite the despicable machinations of the Jean Mensah-led Electoral Commission to suppress votes by restricting registration to single EC Offices, we in North Tongu are determined not to leave any 18-year-old behind. Kindly take note of this plan for successful facilitation,” he tweeted.
Despite a restraining order from five political parties, the EC started the procedure on Monday at its 268 district offices nationwide.
Four other opposition parties, including the National Democratic Congress (NDC), have also voiced their displeasure with the way the EC is handling the registration procedure.
The NDC claims that the electoral board disenfranchised qualified voters in advance of the 2024 general elections by placing defective and dysfunctional registration devices in its strongholds.
