The Electoral Commission (EC) has announced that the compilation of the new Voters’ register has not been cancelled. A section of the media had reported that the exercise scheduled for April 25, had been cancelled due to the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus in Ghana. But the Commission in a statement said plans are far advanced for the successful take-off of the registration process.
However, it said in view of the ban imposed on public gatherings by President Akufo-Addo, a new date for the registration will be announced in due course.
The Electoral Commission Tuesday said it has not abandoned its plan to compile a new voters register for the 2020 General Election. However, it will in due course announce a new date for the exercise in line with the ban against public gathering announced by the President on Sunday night.
Although the Electoral Commission had wanted to compile a new voters’ register on April 18, the exercise will not come off on the said date following the president’s four-week ban on public gatherings.
New date for the interviewing of the temporal electoral officials in districts that are yet to start will subsequently be announced. Avenuegh.com will keep you updated when new schedule is announced.

“The Electoral Commission has noted with concern, information in sections of the media to the effect that the compilation of the New Voters’ Register has been cancelled due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in the country.
