The biggest opposition party, the NDC is leading a coalition of like-minded opposition political parties to demonstrate through the streets of Kumasi Tuesday morning to mount enough pressure on the Electoral Commission to rescind its decision to compile a new voters’ register for the December general elections.
The disgruntled parties say there is no need for a new voters’ register, arguing that the electoral governing body is engaged in frivolous spending.
The Commission, however, insists the current register is not fit for purpose and its incoming register is enhanced with better security features.
Police in the Ashanti Region have said they will provide adequate security measures for today’s demonstration by the Inter-Party Resistance Against a New Voters’ Register (IPRNA).
