The Communications Director of Electoral Commission (EC), Sylvia Annor has said when the Electoral Commission begins the the mass voter registration for the upcoming Presidential and Parliamentary elections, only twenty-five (25) people will be allowed at registration centre at a time.
According to her, the Commission has put necessary measures in place to ensure that Ghanaians are protected against the contraction of Covid-19 during the registration.
In an interview with Francis Abban on Morning Starr Wednesday, the EC spokesperson is set to develop a voters’ register for the upcoming general elections.
“At each point in time we will ensure that we do not have more than 25 persons including the officials at any registration centre,” she said.
She added: “People coming to register will be given hand sanitizers before they enter the registration centre, you need to wear a face mask, without a face mask you cannot enter a registration centre. There will be no crowding at the registration centre, I can assure you”.
She added that existing
Voters’ ID will not be accepted or used as proof of identity during the registration exercise.
“You need a Ghanaian passport or Ghana card, if for one reason or the other you don’t have any of the two then you fall on the other which is getting two guarantors to guarantee for you.
“We are not using the old voters’ ID card, the voters’ ID card, some people argue, is not a good index for identification. It’s an established fact that the ID card is not a good index for proof of identification”.
