The NDC is leading a coalition of like-minded opposition political parties to demonstrate through the streets of Kumasi to mount pressure on the EC to rescind its decision to compile a new voters’ register.

The disgruntled parties say there is no need for a new voters’ register, arguing that the electoral governing body is engaged in frivolous spending.

The Commission, however, insists the current register is not fit for purpose and its incoming register is enhanced with better security features.

Police in the Ashanti region have said they will provide adequate security measures for today’s demonstration by the Inter-Party Resistance Against a New Voters' Register (IPRNA).
