The Electoral Commission has advised the public to disregard a social media post purported to be coming for the EC and pointing out the ills of the commission’s guarantor system.

Acting Director of Public Affairs, Sylvia Annoh, in a signed statement, described the post as completely false.

The statement added that the system could detect a guarantor who has guaranteed for more than ten people.

“Our electoral system is capable of picking guarantors who guarantee for more than 10 applicants,” it said.

“It is an electoral offence to guarantee for more than 10 applicants,” the statement added

It then explained the system does not contain all the alien terms mentioned in the audio being circulated by a gentleman calling himself McKenzie

“The system in place is not based on ‘Algorithm Mathematics’ as it is being alleged. Neither does the system have a vault called ‘Non-verifiable Names’. These terms are completely unknown to the Electoral Commission’s systems,” it said.

The Commission therefore urged the general public to refer to it’s news and information portals for credible information regarding the registration process, adding that “We encourage the general public to be circumspect and assist the Electoral Commission to deliver a credible register by being vigilant and ensuring that fake news is not spread.”
