New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for the Sekondi Constituency, Andrew Egyapa Mercer, has urged the National Democratic Congress (NDC) not to be quick in judging the success of the limited registration exercise being carried out by the Electoral Commission (EC).
“Why is the NDC quick to judge a 3-week-old exercise from the first day it started; let us not do that,” he urged.
Mr Mercer admits there will be challenges with the process which begun on Monday but contends that does not provide enough grounds for the NDC to run down the success of the exercise.
“This is not the first time we are conducting a limited registration exercise so if it wasn’t inconvenient previously, what has changed now for it to be inconvenient,” he asked on Adom TV’s Badwam Show.
Hon Mercer’s comment follows a statement by the NDC’s Communication Officer, Sammy Gyamfi of a slow and ineffective process on the first day of the registration.
“The EC refused our advice and went ahead with the district offices registration and now we have reports of slow network and challenges with the online system and the NDC has been vindicated by the slow process because we complained about it,” Mr Gyamfi said on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen show on Monday.
Meanwhile, the EC has described the limited voters’ registration exercise which took off on Monday as successful and running smoothly.
