The Electoral Commission of Ghana has denied the allegation made by Care for Free and Fair Elections Ghana (CARE GHANA) that it is secretly registering Ghanaians at its headquarters, calling it a breach of the law.
The Director of Electoral Services at the Commission, Dr. Serebour Quaicoe, stated in an interview on Peace FM’s morning show ‘Kokrokoo’ that the only people who were registered were 5 Ghanaians who were living abroad and missed the opportunity to register.
He explained that the Supreme Court ruled in favour of Tehn Addy and per the judgement, if a Ghanaian living abroad applies to the Commission to be registered, the Commission is required to do it.
Therefore, when they apply, the Commission does it for them. Dr. Quaicoe emphasized that the Commission is not engaging in any secret registration and that the new C.I. has not been passed; they are using the current one which is C.I 91.
