The Electoral Commission of Ghana has suspended the new voters registration exercise until further notice.
The Director of Electoral Service Dr. Serebour Quaicoe confirmed that the exercise has been suspended due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic.
He broke the news after an Inter-Party Advising Committee (IPAC) meeting on Wednesday, March 25, 2020.
“We had planned to do the registration on the 18th but because of the pandemic, we can’t do it on the 18th, so, we are observing what is happening around Ghana and the global issue…so, when it gets to a time that we think the situation is fertile for us to commence with the registration then we can do it,” Mr. Quaicoe explained.
The new voters registration exercise was scheduled for April 18 this year with the Electoral Commission having the hope that it will be completed in May 30, 2020.
