After its first demonstration held against the Electoral Commission’s (EC) quest for the compilation of a new Voters Register, the Inter-Party Resistance Against New Voters’ Register Coalition embarked on its second demonstration on Tuesday, January 21.
The Coalition, led by the National Democratic Congress (NDC), says there is no need for the compilation of a new register as the current Voters Register is fit for use in the 2020 parliamentary and presidential elections and not obsolete as claimed by the EC.
