Police Officers complain of missing names from register

Some senior police officers in Accra are complaining that their names cannot be found in the voters register and therefore they cannot take part in the special voting exercise that is currently on-going across the country.

When the Ghana News Agency (GNA) visited the polling station at the Kaneshie Police Station, some of the Senior Police Officers who spoke on conditions of anonymity said more than 40 Officers could not find their names in the voters register even though they were told by their superiors that they were to cast their votes at that particular polling station.

According to the Officer, those who could not find their names were registered at the Police Training Depot at Tesano and wondered why their names were not included in the register.

He said when they complained to the Presiding Officer at the polling Station, they were told nothing could be done unless they waited till Friday December 7 before they could exercise their franchise.

He, however, appealed to the Electoral Commission (EC), to find an alternative solution to the problem because most of them may be working outside their constituencies on Friday.

Mr Joseph Quartey, the Electoral Officer at the Station confirmed the story and said the exercise had, however, been peaceful and that he was expecting 1,434 security personnel and other EC officials to cast their votes. GNA
