It is abundantly clear the EC seeks to suppress the votes of first-time voters with the explanation that not all eligible

voters are willing to vote.

A Constitutional Body like the EC must not start a limited registration exercise on the premise of unconstitutionality/illegality!

The EC is violating the letter and spirit of Article 42 and 45 of the 1992 Constitution, and C.I 91 as amended by C.I. 126.

The EC must remember at all times that, the right to register to vote is guaranteed by the 1992 constitution.

It is clear the EC set out to breach the constitution of Ghana with impunity by designating ONLY 268 registration centres to register their projected 1 million, 350 thousand (1,350,000) first-time voters. This decision is presenting geographical and economic barriers to many first-time voters.

In 2019 when the EC sought to register 500,000 people, the EC used 1,500 registration centres.

So why use 268 centres to register over 1 million people?

For emphasis, even if one is to even entertain the EC’s untenable decision to further reduce the first-time voters to be registered from 1,350,000 to 800,000, why use less registration centres (268) for that; when the EC deployed 1,500 centres for 500,000 people in 2019?
We must demonstrably arise and once again call on the EC to expand the registration centres to the Electoral Areas.

The Supreme Court must also be alive to the importance and urgency of the related pending case filed by the NDC, CPP, APC, LPG and GCPP aimed at seeking redress.

The EC is failing our democracy!
And the Supreme Court must act to save Ghana’s democracy!
