New Force Leader Nana Kwame Bediako Advocates For Extension Of The Limited Voter Registration Exercise

Leader of the New Force Nana Kwame Bediako is advocating for the Electoral Commission to expand and extend access to the ongoing voter registration exercise.

At a press conference on Monday 20th May 2024, Nana Kwame Bediako expressed profound concerns regarding the severe limitations placed on exercise adding that there are significant issues impacting the voter registration exercise, including the inadequate duration of the registration period, limited accessibility to registration centers, and recurring technical challenges.

These issues, he says, pose a threat to the fundamental right to vote for many eligible citizens and undermine public trust in the electoral system.

Nana Kwame Bediako also called out the electoral commission for depriving the rights of the youths from exercising their democratic rights and prayed the Commission to extend the timeframe.

The ongoing limited voter registration exercise has been hit with a number of challenges but the Electoral Commission has hinted at the possibility of extending the limited voters’ registration period if deemed necessary to accommodate all eligible citizens.

The 21-day exercise, which will end on May 27, 2024, is expected to register 623,000 new entrants who will have the opportunity to exercise their franchise during the December 7 general elections.
