The Member of Parliament for Ashaiman, Ernest Norgbey has said that his name and details were not found on the voters register after he went to check his details in the ongoing exhibition exercise by the Electoral Commission.
Hon. Norgbey also claim that 21,000 people have not been captured including 16 people of his household.
“I was not worried when my name was not in there because I know there could be a mistake of that nature. But I quickly asked my people to check from all the centers. The total number of registrants in the register that was exhibited, when they brought the figures, juxtaposing it with what we had, we realized that 21,000 people were missing from the register” he told the press when he visited the constituency.
But the Electoral Commission has debunked the assertion that his name was not captured and that the 21,000 is too huge a number not to be capture.
The Public Relations Officer , Sylvia Annor in an interview said “You are mentioning a very huge figure, 21,000. So let those individuals go to the centers, if they go, and they are denied, they will be given inclusion forms if their names are not in the exemptions list or the multiple lists for them to be included on the voters’ register,” she said.
