Political Science Lecturer at the University of Ghana, Prof. Ransford Gyampo has said the number of voters captured in the just ended voters registration exercise is understandable.

According to the Electoral Commission, (EC) it is expecting that 15 million people would have registered by the end of the exercise.

This development has left many political actors arguing that the numbers recorded by the EC is a clear indication the old register isn’t bloated as it is perceived to be among other reasons for which a new one is being compiled.

According to Prof. Gyampo, although he is against the compilation of the new register, the number of prospective voters captured is not strange.

“There are people who may have died but there are also people who may have been born and others who have attained 18 years so it cancels out,” he said.

He continued that “whether we like it or not, the electoral commission insisted. They are the administrators. They felt that there were other challenges that needed to be dealt with.”

Meanwhile, EC has inaugurated a voter registration adjudication committee to help expunge the names of multiple registrants from the voters register.

The 16-member multi-stakeholder committee which was inaugurated by the Chairperson of the EC, Mrs Jean Mensa will be required to manually determine the eligibility of persons who have been flagged for multiple registration through the de-duplication process to be on the voter roll.
