The Ranking Member on Parliament's Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee, Inusah Fuseini, has questioned the readiness of the Electoral Commission ahead of the 2020 election because of the reported cases of missing names from the electoral roll.
In an interview with Citi News, the Tamale Central MP said, the EC must provide clarity on the situation in a bid not to disenfranchise people.
He also suggested the missing names were deliberate.
“You can't by any stretch of imagination claim 21,000 people’s names being missing on the register at Ashaiman is diminutive. You cant say that 1,800 people not having their name on the register when they registered for elections in South Dayi is diminutive”
“But when the removal and the absence of the name on register are so glaring that it cannot by any stretch of imagination be said to be errors committed by persons or officers of the EC inadvertently then you have to question the Commission and its readiness conduct a free, fair and credible election. I think that this could be deliberate and it’s left with the EC to disapprove that view.”
