Compiling a new voters’ register for the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections is ‘unnecessary’, Special Aide to former President John Dramani Mahama, Joyce Bawa Mogtari has said.
According to Joyce Bawa Mogtari, she thinks the decision to go out there to compile a new voters’ register at this time is unnecessary and also, so far for, all the reasons and the mistakes that the Electoral Commission itself has made actually compromises the whole process. And it gives citizens the cause to call for some redress. I look forward to the Supreme Court to determine this matter in a way that settles this issue for the citizens of this country and not necessarily for the NDC,” she said.
She further added that, “At a time that we have just six months to the elections, when would you compile the register? When will you exhibit it for people to go and crosscheck before we go to the polls? I think that timing is of the essence.”
Madam Joyce Bawa Mogtari made the remark on Citi TV‘s weekend current affairs program, The Big Issue on Saturday, June 6, 2020.
