The NDC Professionals Forum-North America has vowed to get the Ghana’s Electoral Commission (EC) to institute the right processes for election 2020 which the group says will save the country from “unwarranted disorder” as a possible result of the unrealistic decrees by the election management body.

A statement signed by President of Proforum – North America Arnold Appiah, Friday April 26, 2019; noted that the EC has once again goofed in proposing a “review of IT infrastructure” which requires voter registrants in the limited registration exercise to throng district centers to get registered.

“The Proforum North America is therefore demanding a clear-cut plan for their so-called “IT Infrastructure” registration exercise since, it is obvious from the ‘Jean Mensa decrees’, that the EC does not have a full grasp of the country’s geographic terrain and IT setup. The sovereign constitution mandates the EC to come up with modalities for registration but it calls for common sense, logic and wisdom to live up to expectation, for which the current EC is shamelessly failing Ghanaians. And it is even more laughable when the EC chair takes offence when experience and monumental brains laugh the absurdity of the EC off” the statement said.

The statement further noted that the foundation of Ghana’s democracy is at the grassroots and the structures at polling stations must be allowed to supervise the electoral process which begins with the registration of voters.
