Tomorrow marks the start of the Biometric registration. The exercise is to replace the existing voters register and by implication nullify previous ID cards. The Electoral Commission says it is adequately prepared to start the biometric registration. The Head of the Public Affairs of the Commission, Christian Owusu Parry told Radio Ghana that, all registration officers have been trained and materials needed for the exercise, have also been dispatched to all districts across the country. Mr. Parry said the commission has met with all political parties to deliberate on major issues ahead of the start of the exercise.
Meanwhile, the NDC has asked all Ghanaians who have attained the prescribed voting age of 18 to endeavour to register when the biometric voter registration takes off tomorrow. This is very important because that is the only ticket to allow them to vote in the December general elections.
The call was contained in a statement issued in Accra and signed by a Deputy General Secretary of the party, George Lawson. Mr Lawson urged party agents to be vigilant and ensure the right things are done to ensure violence free exercise.
