The Electoral Commission has noted that it has been able to retrieve names of “valid electorate” that it initially failed to capture into the provisional register that was recently compiled.
Speaking to the media on Monday September 28, chairperson of the commission, Mrs Jean Mensah said, “we have successfully retrieved and continue to retrieve valid applicants who were missing from the provisional register. We have updated the electronic register with the missing data.”
Thus, the EC Chair implied that the alleged 7,000 and counting applicants whose names were alleged to have been deliberately removed from the register, “are on the electronic register”.
She said, “In the case of Ashaiman, we have a deficit of 165 persons and we are expecting that these persons will come through the register through the process of inclusion.”
