The main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) is threatening to take legal actions against the Electoral Commission (EC) for refusing to halt the ongoing voters’ registration exercise.

Speaking to Starr News, a member of the NPP's elections committee, Osei Bonsu Amoah said the party could sue the EC to halt the process should the commission ignore calls for consultation.

“If they think they can do things their own way, then they create a problem for everybody and we can’t advise them on this when the law is very clear.

“If they want to amend the regulations, they should tell the whole world but so long as the regulations exist, we will not sit down for the EC to do what they like” he warned.

The Commission, last Friday, announced the opening of the register for Ghanaians who have turned 18 and those who could not register in the last exercise.

Since the announcement, various political parties have raised concerns about the EC’s decision not to consult them.  Whilst NPP says the registration offends Public Elections Regulation 2012 C.I. 72 which states clearly how registration of eligible voters must be done, believes consultation is in line with good governance.

The EC has, however, rubbished the claims indicating that it has not in any way erred.
