A demonstration, which some political pressure groups hoped would ratchet up pressure on the Electoral Commission (EC) to create a new voters’ register, turned bloody on Wednesday, September 16, when some of the demonstrators deviated from the planned route.

The Alliance for Accountable Governance, Let My Vote Count and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) were the group of demonstrators who had rallied hundreds of protesters in Accra to demand the creation of a new voters’ register.

The demonstrators set off from the Obra spot and made their way through Kwame Nkrumah Avenue en route to the Hearts of Oak training grounds near the Arts Centre.

But at Cathedral area, the demonstrators tried to veer off the approved route and head towards the the office of the Electoral Commission, leading to bloody clashes with the police.

Reports say, the police who guided them during the demonstration used tear gas to disperse the protesters, while arresting tens of them.
