Must Read: Jean Mensa Is Autocratic – Hassan Ayariga Descends On EC
Jan. 24, 2020
Founder and leader of the All Peoples Congress Hassan Ayariga have said that the body of the electoral commission has failed to listen to the voice and calls by Ghanaians to abort its decision to compile a new voter register ahead of the upcoming general election.
According to him, the EC under the leadership of Jean Mensa is an autocratic body since they have decided to not listen to the calls by Ghanaians to withdraw their decision. He believes the country is a democratic state and so the EC should act and follow suit.
''Is the EC going to force the political parties if they are not agreeing to the compilation of the voters' register? Is the EC telling Ghanaians whether they like it or not they will impose it on us? They are not listening to the cry of the Ghanaian people, they don't care whether the people want a register or not”.
His comments come at the back of the EC’s announcement to commence the registration exercise on April 8th, 2020 despite the calls and protests by political parties and civil society organizations for the electoral commission to boycott their plans of compiling a new voter register.
Though the political parties protesting against the electoral commission have suspended their lined-up demonstrations, Hassan Ayariga assured that they will continue with their demos whether or not the EC compiles the voter register or not.
Meanwhile, the Eminent Advisory Committee of the Electoral Commission (EC) will on January 30, 2020, meet members of the Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) over the compilation of a new voters' register.
