The party agents of the two major political parties- New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed satisfaction with the registration exercise after day one processes.

The agents, who spoke to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) during a visit to some centres within the Ho Municipality said the numbers recorded on Tuesday were encouraging.

Mr Arnold Attakora, NDC Agent at the Kabore Primary Centre said “so far so good” as the process ended well.

Mr Chris Awuku, the NPP agent also said he was satisfied with the proceedings as no major incident had been encountered.

Madam Loretta Dzandu, the Registration Officer said the Biometric Voter Registration machine developed a technical problem but 91 new cards were issued at the end of day one.

Some 23 applicants had their cards on Wednesday, at about 0946 hours.

Mr Jerry Tamakloe and Madam Benedicta Akordor, agents of the NPP and NDC respectively told the GNA they were impressed with how the EC officials were discharging their duties.

Madam Perfect Alai, the Registration Officer of the Centre said the machines went off for some time during the process yesterday and that had accounted for the shortfall, but was, however, quick to add that the situation was rectified.

She said non adherence to the social distancing protocol was one challenge the centre also encountered yesterday as most people were not willing to comply, saying they had already washed their hands and applied sanitizers.

Mr Adu Mensah, the Registration Officer of the Centre told GNA that the rains disrupted the exercise for a short while.

There were Veronica buckets filled with water, tissue papers, liquid soaps and hand sanitizers at all the centres to enable the registration officers and the registrants observe the health safety protocols to stem the spread of the Covid-19.

There was also an infrared thermometer gun at the centres to check temperatures of the registration officers.
