The Electoral Commission says it will only register eligible Ghanaians who are in the queue on or before 5:00pm today, Monday, the 2nd of October, 2023 tomorrow, Tuesday, the 3rd of October, 2023.
It wishes to inform the general public that the 2023 Voters Registration Exercise ended at 5:00pm today, Monday, the 2nd of October, 2023.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) appealed to the Electoral Commission (EC) to extend the limited voter registration exercise for people who are yet to register due to the Commission’s challenges.
In a press briefing, the EC disclosed that it has registered over 600,000 eligible voters.
However, a deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Mustapha Gbande, told Citi News that the EC must ensure that all eligible applicants are registered before the exercise ends.
Limited Voter Registration
The Electoral Commission (EC) begun the Limited Voter Registration exercise at its district offices across the country on September 12 in spite of a pending interlocutory injunction filed at the Supreme Court by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and four other minority parties.
The 21-day exercise is scheduled to end on October 2, today.
The EC has targeted to register at least 1,350,000 persons in the 2023 Voters Registration exercise based on its projection that such a number might have attained 18 years since the last registration exercise in 2020.
A Deputy Commissioner of the EC in charge of Corporate Services, Dr Bossman Eric Asare, said since the exercise had not taken place over the last three years for persons who have turned 18 years and above, “we expect the numbers to be huge in the opening few days and hopefully after a week it will normalise.”
