The United Progressive Party strongly believes that the 2012 Voters Register is cleaner and credible for the conduct of the 2016 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections. Political Parties particularly the NPP and civil society organisations calling for a new voters registration for the 2016 elections have no reasonable justification.
The NPP and Nana Addo were of the opinion that they won the 2012 electons with the same 2012 voters register they are claiming is bloated. So does mean that nana addo won the 2012 election with bloated register? Where was NPP General Secretary and Nana Addo when the Electoral Commission was compiling the 2012 voters register? And what is the guaranteed that in case the Electoral Commission heed to the call of the NPP to compile a new voters register for the 2016 general elections there will be absolutely no abnormalies or irregularities?
What NPP and Nana Addo urgently need for the battle 2016 is a sense of purpose and strong unity. A Party with leadership crisis and deep seated divisions can never win the 2016 general elections even if Electoral Commission employ the service of Heaven Angels to compile a new voters register for the 2016 general elections. Nana Addo should put his Party in order and that is what NPP supporters and Ghanaians are expecting from him and not a call for new voters register. If you cannot work with your National Chairman and General Secretary, what is the hope and guaranteed that you can unite 25 million Ghanaians if you becomes President?
Recruiting well educated Polling Agents and giving them the necessary training and motivation is very important for elections victory since elections are won at the Pollimg stations.
What needs to be done is for the Political Parties and civil society organisations to support the Electoral Commission (EC) and its new boss to complete the electoral reform process that has been agreed upon by the Electoral Reforms Committee which was set up by the Electoral Commission.
