New Voters’ register piloting was a success- Jeff Konadu
The Eastern Regional Secretary for the New Patriotic Party Jeff Konadu has said the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana’s piloting exercise was a success on Tuesday June 3 2020.
Speaking to Nana Darkwah on Obuoba Fm’s Morning Show ‘Obuoba Kasa’, he said that equipment applied by the Electoral Commission for the piloting exercise adequately worked to perfection.
According to him, the EC has provided more details on the new voters’ Identification card as compared to the old card.
Some of the new initiatives include facial recognition, name, date of birth, polling station code and date of registration. “This time round it is very easy to register a large number of people within the shortest possible time” he asserted.
The Electoral Commission started a piloting system at their regional offices across the country to test the strength of the new BVR equipment before the commencement of the mass registration.
