Minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu has disclosed that he has picked intelligence that there is going to be the creation of 25 new constituencies following the 2021 population and housing census. This he said they will resist it.
According to him, the new constituencies according to the information they have will be about 25.
Out of the 25 new constituencies, the minority leader in parliament said their sources say 11 of the new constituencies will be from a particular region.
He, however, served the notice that the National Democratic Congress and its Legislators will resist that introduction.
"I am saying that NDC we are determined to see major electoral reforms in 2024 and we will not accept anything short of those reforms. We are not going to accept the declaration of reforms at the regional level. Let all polling stations impact the 50 plus one percent. Ghana for electoral purposes is demarcated into constituencies that is why you have polling stations so the presidential result is not for nothing that the constitution says that the chairperson of the electoral commission and not any regional collation and it should be a computation of polling station outcomes aggregated into the whole."
