EC rejects “No Verification No Vote” concept
The Electoral Commission (EC) has rejected two of the electoral reforms proposed by the Committee set up to look into the reforms suggested by the Supreme Court.
They are the “No Verification No Vote” issue and the inclusion of Civil Society Organisations at IPAC meetings.
This was announced by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs Charlotte Osei in Accra, at a programme dubbed “Time with the Commissioners.”
The event was used to outline twenty-seven reforms to be undertaken by the EC to ensure credible, free and fair election this year.
Mrs. Osei explained that the “No Verification no Vote” concept cannot work because the biometric device can break down at any time.
Therefore any registered voter who has his name on the voters register must be allowed to vote in the event that the verification machine breaks down.
