The Electoral Commission of Ghana clarify that they only need Ghana cards for continuous registration and not for the compilation of a new voters register.
According to the director of the electoral services Dr. Serebour Quaicoe “We already compiled a register in 2020, we only want to roll out continuous registration. It is only for those who are going for the continuous registration that we are demanding for the Ghana card.”
They noted that unless they decided not to update the voter's register but if they decide so, they will spend money on printing cards which is less costly as compared to the compelling of new voters register because fewer hands will be needed.
“Of course, we will have to print cards, among others, unless we are saying we will no longer update our voter register. As far as the aforementioned things will be done, we need to incur some costs. But this will not be as expensive as compiling a new voters register.”
This follows the allegation leveled against them by the minority in Parliament that Electoral Commission is compiling a new voters register.
