The Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) has praised the Electoral Commission (EC) for successfully conducting the limited voter registration exercise.

Albert Arhin, the National Coordinator, noted that despite initial challenges at some registration centers, the EC effectively managed the process overall.

“My verdict is that the EC did well. It has done well and why I am saying this is that yes, we had problems at the initial stages, especially with the first two days. We had this problem of some machines not working well and we also had this network problem.

“So, if you remember at a point in time,  they said they could go offline and be doing the registration. But I think the EC listened to advice so they were able to cope. And so, after the first two days where we had these problems, the exercise stabilised and it went on smoothly,” he lauded in an interview on Accra-based Citi FM.

The 21-day exercise, starting on May 7 and originally set to conclude on May 27, 2024, has been extended.

In response to requests for more time, the EC extended the deadline to May 29, a day marked by long queues in various regions of the country.
