The Peoples National Convention is making claims of unfair ‘leakage’ of soft copies of electoral register and has called on the Electoral Commission to immediately call an Inter-party Advisory Committee to address it.

The Party’s General Secretary Bernard Mornah told Joy News’ Eric Ahianyo he has evidence the Keta and Fanteakwa constituencies have access to these soft copies of the register at a time when the EC has refused to make them available to the parties.

“Currently the EC has officially declined to give soft copies of the register to political parties but we have seen other constituencies where the soft copy is available to some people within some political parties that is giving a lot of tension to our people,” he said.

He added “this process is dangerous. This process can jeopardize the fortunes of any election.”

Asked what difference it makes for a constituency to have a soft copy, Bernard Mornah said “if you have soft copies you will be able to check with members; you will be able to circulate it adequately to our constituencies based on which we will have veritable way of checking whether the names of party members that they know are on the list and will make the necessary remedies that are needed.”

He said an Inter-party Advisory Committee meeting is necessary to streamline all these challenges.
