Member of Parliament for Asawase, Mr Muntaka Mukabarak, has said Electoral Commission’s decision to create registration centres in senior high schools to register students goes against the Constitutional Instrument (CI) 91 that is governing this year’s elections.
He explained that the C.I. 91 entreats the EC to gazette such a decision 21 days before the registration however, the EC has failed to do that.
Speaking to Accra FM’s parliamentary correspondent Richard Appiah Sarpong in an interview, Muntaka said “this morning, we are hearing directives that the Electoral Commission is saying they are going to create centres in secondary schools to register the children, this is against the C.I.91”.
“The C.I.91 is very clear that if you want to create a polling station, you have not gazette it 21 days before the start of the registration”.
“Now you are going to open registration centres in secondary schools when you have not gazetted it, what do you want to do. You want to create confusion.”
