The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana has indicated that about 30,000 persons have been disqualified from voting in this year’s general elections.
Speaking to Citi FM and monitored by myaimreport.com, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Electoral Commission, Sylvia Annor said:
“The names of about 30,000 registered voters have been deleted or expunged from the provisional voters’ register because they are either on the exceptions lists or the multiple lists.
“The multiple list is made up of names of all those who engaged in double registration during the voter’s registration exercise.”
“The exceptions list is made up of registered voters who were found guilty by the district registration review committees at the various district levels.
“They were challenged probably because they were under 18 years, non-Ghanaians, or gave wrong locations. During the registration exercise, we went offline, so we did not detect immediately,” she added.
Ms Sylvia Annor also stated that the list of these persons will be published at the various polling stations across the country in the coming days.
