The Electoral Commission of Ghana has propoesd among other things "implementation of the continous voter registration exercise to enable citizens who turned 18 years and who had not previously registered to do so".
However, the opposition National Democratic Congress has rubbished this proposal in a press conference organised by the party.
Speaking on Newsfile today, the National Communication Officer of the party, Sammy Gyamfi argued that such a proposal is not feasible due to the potential challenges with cost and logistics.
Sharing similar opinion on the show, Mr Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, opined that such recommendations needed to be reconsidered in the face of challenges that it could put on the shoulders of political parties.
"Some of these reforms that the EC is proposing, especially the continuous registration and the rest, Sammy is making an argument in terms of logistics, personnel and agents that will be appointed, who is going to pay for it? So there is real challenge relative to logistics mobilisation and how the law needs to be implemented", he pointed out.
The veteran journalist further advised the EC to abandon its proposal on validation of voters for the purposes of election.
