More than nine million registered – EC

The Electoral Commission (EC) says it has, as of July 20, registered 9,860,164 persons in the ongoing voter registration exercise.

The number, according to the EC, represents 65.7 per cent of the projected 15 million of registered voters.

The Deputy Chairman in Charge of Operations at the EC, Mr Samuel Tettey, made this known at the sixth edition of the “Let The Citizen Know” series in Accra

Mr Tettey said the deployment of more Kits to the registration centres, increase in the number of mobile teams and back-ups and immediate replacement of faulty Kits had resulted in the relative increase of persons registered in the third phase of the exercise.

Mr Tettey noted that the Greater Accra region was leading with 2,128,515 representing 21.6 per cent followed by the Ashanti region with 1,773,601 translating into 18 per cent and the Eastern region with 935,296 representing 9.5 and the Central region 916,848 representing 9.3 per cent.
