The Electoral commission has refuted claims by the former President, John Mahama that the commission deliberately to out some names from the voters register.

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress has accused the elections management of omitting some names especially voters of its stronghold for the Voter Register that is been exhibited across the country.

But in response, the EC in a statement on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 said “The Commission has, from the beginning of the compilation of the Voters Register, lived up to its motto: Fairness, Transparency and Accountability.”

It is noted there will be some issues with the register and that is why law, CI 91, provides that the register should be inspected by the public to correct these anomalies hence the exhibition of the voters register.

“In a nutshell, the Exhibition Exercise provides an opportunity to Stakeholders to unearth problems with the Register for the purpose of fixing it. This is exactly what the Electoral Commission is doing. We are fixing the issues unearthed. We assure the Public that the Commission is working to ensure that the margin of error with the Voters Register is negligible.” the statement indicated.

The commission will however meet with Inter- Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) to discuss matters arising from the ongoing exercise.
