Kwesi Pratt Jnr., Editor-in-Chief of the Insight Newspaper has warned the Electoral Commission against compiling new voters register for the 2020 elections.
Mr. Pratt believes this is unnecessary because we are a few months to the elections and this will only result in chaos if care is not taken.
He spoke at a forum organized by the Coalition of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) for Good Governance in Accra Thursday.
He said he does not understand why the EC would say the current register is credible but would go ahead to compile a new register.
He also said this same register was used for the recent referendum which means it is credible.
“If you have a register which is credible why spend close to 1bGHC to produce a new one, this simply doesn’t make sense, it falls into the category of no sense. There are many things that should worry us if the EC has decided to compile a new register why spend so much on the old one and now we want to do a new one with another cash”
Mr Pratt also warned the EC against compiling the new register as he beleives this could result in chaos because of the divided opinion.
