Voters register is ‘incurably flawed’ - Dr. Bawumia

New Patriotic Party's (NPP) 2016 running mate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has described the current voters register as incurably flawed and unfit to be used for the 2016 elections.

Dr. Bawumia, addressing the press at the Alisa Hotel in Accra said that the NPP being convinced of the flaws in the voters roll is requesting for a new one.

“The voters register is incurably flawed and can’t be relied on for 2016 elections…that is why we submitted our petition to the EC this morning…,” he said.

The NPP is currently holding a press conference to present their case for a new voters roll ahead of the 2016 elections.

The former deputy governor of the Bank of Ghana is presenting the party’s argument.

The event #NewVotersRegisterNow is attended by several NPP bigwigs including flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Party scribe, Kwabena Agyepong and Party chairman, Paul Afoko.

Dr. Bawumia is doing a powerpoint presentation to state the party's case.

He refers to the use of National Health Insurance cards to register during the opening of the voters register to buttress the point for the compilation of a new one.
