The National Peace Council has sounded a warning bell regarding the recent outbreaks of violence witnessed at certain voter registration centers during the ongoing limited voter registration exercise.

 

The council underscores the importance of addressing these incidents promptly, as they could potentially jeopardize the integrity of the upcoming December 7 elections if left unchecked.

George Amoh, the Executive Secretary of the Peace Council, highlighted the significance of recognizing these incidents as early warning signs, urging stakeholders not to underestimate their potential impact on the electoral process. While acknowledging the seriousness of the situation, he emphasized that these challenges should serve as a catalyst for heightened vigilance rather than discouragement.

Mr. Amoh also called upon the Electoral Commission to leverage all available opportunities to ensure the registration of as many eligible voters as possible. He stressed the need for inclusivity and urged the commission to uphold its established processes to prevent the disenfranchisement of any eligible voter.

The concerns raised by the Peace Council come in the wake of the Electoral Commission’s justification for advocating the use of the Ghana Card as the sole document for voter registration, citing instances of violence linked to challenges related to age and citizenship verification. Despite this justification, the Peace Council emphasizes the importance of utilizing existing mechanisms to mitigate the risk of further escalation and ensure the integrity of the electoral process.

In light of these developments, the Peace Council urges the Electoral Commission to remain steadfast in its efforts to facilitate a transparent and inclusive voter registration process, thereby safeguarding the democratic rights of all eligible citizens.
