Below is the full statement:

LMVCA HOLDS RALLY AT OKAISHIE DRUG LANE

The LMVCA is organising a rally on Friday, September 16, 2016 at Okaishie drug lane at 1pm. The rally is to commemorate the one year anniversary of the demonstration to demand a credible voter’s register in 2015.

On the 16th September 2015, the Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVCA) in collaboration with the Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG), Movement for Change the NPP, PPP PNC and other civil society groups, held a demonstration to present a petition to the Electoral Commission of Ghana to demand a credible voters’ register for the 2016 elections.

The peaceful demonstration was disrupted when the police and security operatives charged unarmed, non-violent civilian demonstrators with guns, batons, hot water cannons and tear gas, leading to several degrees of casualties. One of the demonstrators, Mr. Justice Adzakumah, lost one eye as a result of the brutalities meted at the demonstrators by the police.

Thus, in commemoration of that fateful day when a peaceful demonstration was marred by the brute force of the security operatives.

LMVCA is therefore calling on all democracy-loving Ghanaians to attend this rally for a progress report on the demand for a credible free fair open and transparent election. Indeed, it has been an eventful year during which LMVCA has led efforts to protect the integrity of the electoral process. These efforts have reaped significant gains, some of which will be outlined during the rally.

The future of Ghana’s democracy hinges on the 2016 elections.

Speakers at the rally include Hon. Kenndy Agyapong, David Asante, Sammy Awuku, Abu Ramadan, Hopeson Adroye, Ibrahim Adjei, Justice Adzakumah, Charles Owusu and Owusu Bempah
