LMVCA Mulls Court Action To Force EC To Compile New Electoral Roll

Pro-NPP pressure group, Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVCA), says it may turn to the courts to compel the Electoral Commission (EC) to compile a new voter’s register.

The pressure group’s decision is in reaction to the EC’s refusal to change the current electoral roll.

National Coordinator of the pressure group, David Asante, says the group is bent on pushing their demands until they hear something favourable.

The pressure group held a huge protest last year to get the EC to change the current register.

David Asante says the courts will be the group’s next resort.

The EC rejected the call for a new register, saying the pro-NPP group has not provided enough evidence that the current register is not credible.

The EC’s decision to keep the current register is consistent with a report by a five-member committee it set up to deliberate proposals for a new voters’ register.

The committee among other things says it “finds the arguments for a new register unconvincing and therefore does not recommend the replacement of the current voters’ register.”

The Commission in a statement signed by Christian Owusu-Parry, Acting Director of Public Affairs at the EC, said it “accepts the recommendations of the panel and will progressively implement the recommendations made therein.”
