Member of Parliament for the North Tongu Constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa is demanding an explanation from the Electoral Commission for the delay in the starting time of voter registration exercise in his constituency.
The MP alleged that the registration exercise in his Constituency delayed for over four hours, adding that the District EC officials explained they were waiting for activation codes from Accra.
The legislator who shared his frustration on social media said it is expedient for the EC to explain the reason for the delay in the start of the exercise. He further demanded to know what arrangements would be made in instances of this sort to ensure no eligible Ghanaian is disenfranchised.
”More than 4 hours since polling stations opened for registration and yet as many as 8 polling stations have not commenced registration in North Tongu all because District EC officials tell me they are waiting for Activation Codes from Accra.
This is unacceptable!” Mr. Ablakwa wrote.
He added that ”We deserve explanations from the Jean Mensah-led EC. We also want to know what arrangements would be made to make up for the time lost. No Ghanaian would be disenfranchised, particularly, by the shortcomings of the EC.”
