Days after reopening of the country’s borders, a group, known as Collation of Repatriated Ghanaians have appealed to the Electoral Commission to organise a special voters’ registration exercise for them to also acquire their voters’ card ahead of the December polls.
The voters’ registration exercise ended on Tuesday, August 6, 2020 with Ghanaians abroad unable to register due to the novel coronavirus restrictions.
In a statement the group said, “majority of us were either observing the mandatory 14-day quarantine or were yet to return to Ghana. Although we were assured that special arrangements would be made for us, nothing is forthcoming.”
“Our understanding is that provided we arrive in Ghana at least three months to the general election special arrangements would be made for such persons to register but it seems such an assurance is not forthcoming,” they added.
