STMA: 48 centres selected for mop-up biometric registration
|Biometric registration|| |
The Electoral Commission (EC) has selected 48 centres in the Western Region for mop-up exercises on the biometric voter registration.
According to the Western Regional Director of the EC, Mr Stephen Opoku-Mensah, the mop-up exercise would be undertaken between June 9 and 10 of this month.
He mentioned some of the districts where centres had been selected as Jomoro, Prestea Huni Valley, Tarkwa Nsuaem, Amenfi East and West.
The rest were Bibiani-Anhwianso-Bekwai, Aowin-Suaman and Ahanta West.
Mr Opoku-Mensah said the mop-up were being undertaken in communities where the electoral equipment broke down during the 40-day nationwide biometric voter registration from March 24 to May 05.
Commenting on delayed payment of allowances of registration officer, the regional electoral director said he had not received the cheque for the payment and advised the registration officers to exercise patience.
He entreated those who could not register during the nationwide voter registration to do so during the mop-up exercise.
He urged those who would be registering to provide the necessary documentation to enable them to register.
Mr Opoku-Mensah noted that the various district electoral committees would adjudicate on those whose eligibility was challenged in last month biometric registration by party agents.
According to him, this would enable the EC to give back the voter identity cards to those who qualify to vote while those found culpable would have their cards confiscated.
