Voter Registration Exercise Ends

The Electoral Commission has officially ended the limited voter registration exercise across all its district offices.

The Commission commended the public for its cooperation and support during the exercise.

The 21-day exercise, which commenced on September 12, 2023, was initially targeted at registering 1,350,000 eligible Ghanaians onto the electoral roll.

It was, however, revised to 700,000.

The Commission said on Thursday, September 28, 2023, that it was on course to achieving its revised target of 52 percent, adding that, after 16 days of the exercise, it had registered 673,276 eligible voters.

The commission has yet to release the total number of new registrants in the just-ended exercise.

To make up for the remaining 48 percent gap, the EC said it would hold continuous registration in 2024 to allow those who could not register this year to do so.

The EC has set Tuesday, December 19, 2023, for the 2023 District Level Elections and it is expected that the just-registered voters will be eligible to cast their votes and subsequently in the general elections in 2024 or any scheduled by-elections.

NET2 TV News spoke with some political stakeholders about their impressions of the just-ended exercise.
