“The Electoral Commission has upgraded the Biometric Registration Kits (BVR Kits) for the impending limited voter registration and subsequent registration exercises,” said a statement issued here and signed by Amadu Sulley, Deputy Chairman for Operations.
The commission said the exercise will be carried out in two selected districts in all the ten regions (provinces) of the country.
The statement further entreated all political parties and prospective voters in the selected polling stations to participate fully to ensure a successful exercise.
Ghanaians will go to the polls in November this year to elect a president and 275 members of parliament.
There have been calls from the leading opposition party in the country, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), and some leading pressure groups for the electoral body to prepare a new voters’ register for the upcoming polls.
