We Will Use Ghana Card For Voters’ Register – Electoral Commission
The Electoral Commission (EC) says despite opposition from some sections of the populace, it will go ahead to use the Ghana Card for the compilation of new voters’ register. According to the electoral management body, the Ghana Card is the most authentic means of identifying Ghanaians, and therefore the Commission’s
decision to use it in compiling a new database of voters. Speaking onThursday, the EC’s Director of Operations Dr Serebour Quaicoe explained that over the years, voter registration exercises have been marked by pockets of confusion across the country. He however noted that once the Ghana Card is used as the primary source
document for collating new voters registers, these challenges will cease. Everybody who has been following registrations in Ghana will release that the tensions that crop up at the registration centres are related to who a Ghanaian is and who is faking. Basically, you’ll have the political parties, especially NPP and NDC at each other’s throats [about who a Ghanaian is]. We believe that if you have a Ghana Card, that issue will be addressed, he stressed.
