The political pressure groups planning to picket in front of the electoral commission and parliament over a new voters register, have said they will change their routes after meeting with the police. The groups, including Let My Vote Count, AFAG had earlier on written to the Police, seeking permission to march through some principal streets of Accra and end up at the Electoral Commission (EC) and Parliament House to present a petition on the need to have a new voters register for the 2016 elections.

But, the police secured a restraining order preventing the group from marching through the two institutions because they are security zones. Even though the groups had earlier on decided to ignore the police's attempt to stop them from using those roads, they said they will now agree with the police.

The chairman of AFAG, Nana Ayew Afriyie has said on Citi FM, “though their route will not change , it is most likely the proposal by the Police is what the group will go by. We want to make the work much easier for the Police, we want to stay focused on the objective of the day, use the appropriate routes, submit our applications with Parliament, and the Electoral Commission  and possibly go to the Hearts park and then we will end it up there,”

He further stated that the group's main interest is ensuring that their concerns are addressed, but not specifically with the venue or the huge numbers that will be involved in the demonstration. The demonstration is however scheduled for September 16, 2015.
