Sammy Gyamfi is the National Communication Officer of NDC

The opposition, National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it still stands by its position that a new voters’ register is not necessary for the December polls.

This comes after the party participated in the pilot registration exercise being conducted by the Electoral Commission (EC).

In a statement signed by the party’s National Communication Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, partaking in the piloting of the new voters’ register doesn’t imply that NDC now support the Jean Mensa-led electoral commission to compile a new roll.

According to him, the party only participated in the pilot registration exercise to monitor the process to prepare the party towards a limited voter registration exercise, “a position we have publicly canvassed.”

“We wish to state unequivocally, that our position against the compilation of a new voters’ register has not changed.

“We maintain that the existing voters’ register, which has successfully delivered five (5) national elections with legitimate outcomes is credible and fit for purpose,” he stressed.

He further pledged the Inter-Party Resistance Against the New Voters’ Register will employ all the necessary democratic means to resist the compilation of the register.

“The agenda of the Jean Mensah-led Electoral commission to disenfranchise millions of eligible voters, has the tendency to jeopardize the peace and democracy of this country. Hence, we shall continue to employ every legitimate means to stop this evil agenda as we have already intimated publicly.”
