The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it has no intention of sacking the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Madam Jean Mensa.
The EC strongly believes there is the need to compile a new voter’s register before the upcoming elections.
To justify the proposal, the EC said a new register was critical for the 2020 polls as they need a new Biometric Voter Management System to replace what they say has become obsolete.
This development has caused a massive stir in the political arena, with many questioning the need to have a new register.
Critical amongst them is the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) who appears to have joined hands with other political parties to echo their reservations with a series of demonstrations and public forums.
But the NDC who believes the EC boss is afraid of being fired when they attain power says the party has no intentions whatsoever to do that.
Speaking on UTV’s late news bulletin, a member of NDC’s communication team Bismark Aborbi said the EC boss should refrain from hurrying to compile a new register since she is scared of losing her job.
he said, “we are not going to sack you; you will still be the Electoral Commissioner when we come to power so you have all the opportunity to change the voters’ register another time . . . right now we are saying that this is not the time to compile a new register, the timing is wrong.”
