The Communications Officer of Ghana’s Electoral Commission (EC), Sylvia Annor says the EC is not using the Limited Registration exercise as a conduit to sideline any political party.
According to the Communications Officer, speculations in the media that the Limited Registration exercise is being used to manipulate people in favor of the New Patriotic Party are not true.
“Anyone who feels we have done anything in that direction should let us know so we deal with the issue. So far as we are concerned the decision taken from the authorities is what descends to the operatives and directors and anyone under them to make sure that what they are supposed to do to make the work better is done,” she stated on Peace FM, monitored by Adomonline.
She further said the Limited Registration exercise will be extended if need be.
She added that citizens who harass others because they feel they are not Ghanaians or are not of age should address the issue in the right way.
“We shouldn’t deal with speculation, we should deal with facts, if you feel a person looks too small to register or is not a Ghanaian, there are ways to address these issues rather than harassing them which may cause chaos at the centres,” she advised.
