Political pressure group, Let My Vote Count Alliance has announced plans to embark on a series of actions aimed at forcing the electoral commission to come out with a new voters register for the 2016 election.

The group allege that the current register is “bloated” and cannot be used for the 2016 election thus their insistence on a new one.

NPP Presidential Candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo and CPP National Chairperson, Samia Nkrumah have both on separate occasions called for a new register for the 2016 election.

Speaking to Citi News after addressing a news conference, a leading member of the Let My Vote Count Alliance, Ibrahim Adjei said the EC must heed to the calls to safeguard the integrity of the 2016 parliamentary and Presidential Elections.

“Given the fact that the Supreme Court only last year said that the register that we have now, given that people used the NHIS as a means of identification is illegal. That alone should tell you that the register that we have is corrupted as per the ruling by the Supreme Court and needs to be expunged of all those ineligible names on the poll so we have a new register.”

He explained that the various political parties have previously made similar calls. “We are one country… the chairperson of the CPP; Samia Nkrumah made the same call. PNC and even the NDC themselves have also made the call and the NPP has made the same call as well. So what we are doing is speaking on behalf, not only on the political parties but for all Ghanaians who are looking forward to 2016 to have a credible, free fair and peaceful election,” Ibrahim Adjei added.
