EC’s claims after EAC meeting deceptive, misleading – IPRAN

The Inter-party Resistance Against the New Voter’s Register (IPRAN) says it is shocked the claims and actions of the Electoral Commission following Thursday’s meeting with the Eminent Advisory Committee.

The commission in a statement after the meeting claimed that there was consensus for a new voters register.

It has therefore announced recruitment for electoral officers for the new voters register for the December polls.

Reacting to the claims of the EC, the group said: “The Resistance finds it curious that, less than 12 hours after the meeting, the agreed communique with the Eminent Advisory Committee has not been released but rather al deceptive and misleading verdict of what transpired has been reported a party in the deliberation, the EC. This points to the fact that, the EC could be misleading the Eminent Advisor and using them to advance a parochial interest of embarking of this wasteful self-serving expedition. Clearly, we were not invited to advance a consensus at all.

“We therefore in the interest of transparency and fairness demand the EAC to release the agreed communique read and approved the parties involved in the dialogue and take steps to proceed with the content as agreed. For the avoidance of doubt we agreed, the meeting was inconclusive and that the avenue for continuous dialogue should be opened so as to allow parties to arrive at a consensus and whiles at it, a platform should be created for technical teams of the political parties to engage with the EC technical team.”

The statement added: “In view of the foregoing the Resistance wishes to announce the escalation of our public manifestations and further declare that The Y3npini March to the EC on Tuesday 4th February 2020. We shall converge at Kawukudi Park, Accra and March through Kanda to the EC and to the Liberation Circle (Children’s Park)”.
