The civil society organization, Justice for Ghana (J4G), has officially announced plans for a sit-in protest to be held at the premises of the Electoral Commission’s (EC) headquarters in Accra.
Scheduled to commence on Friday, September 22, this demonstration aims to express opposition to the Electoral Commission’s decision to conduct the limited voter registration exercise solely at its district offices.
The group contends that this approach hampers and confines the voter registration process, contrary to the provisions of Article 45 (e) of the constitution.
Reaffirming their commitment to lawful and peaceful activism, the leaders of Justice for Ghana stressed that they have meticulously adhered to both the letter and the spirit of the Public Order Act.
“We officially notified the Ghana Police Service of our intention to conduct this historic sit-in on Monday, September 18, 2023,” the group indicated.
J4G urged all and sundry to stand with them in demonstrating at the EC’s office.
“All participants are reminded to wear black or red attire and carry their pillows and mats. Together, let us demonstrate our unwavering commitment to upholding the values of democracy and ensuring that the electoral process in Ghana is fair, transparent, and inclusive,” the group added.
