EC’s Eminent Committee ‘summons emergency meeting’ over new voters’ register commotion

Chairman of the Committee, Justice Francis Emile Short.

The Eminent Advisory Committee of the Electoral Commission is expected to meet with the Electoral Commissioners and members of the Inter-party Advisory Committee (IPAC) over the compilation of a new voters’ register.

The Commission’s decision to compile a new voters’ register ahead of the crucial 2020 General Elections has displeased the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and other smaller parties who have staged various protests across the country.

In a letter issued Friday, EC spokesperson, Sylvia Annoh, said the “meeting will seek to engage the Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC).”

The said meeting is scheduled for Thursday, January 30, 2020, the statement read.
