The Inter-Party Resistance Against New Voters’ Register will today, Tuesday, January 21, 2020, stage a demonstration in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region to protest the Electoral Commission’s decision to compile a new electoral roll.
It maintains that GHS390 million approved to be spent on the register and a new Biometric Voter Management System (BVMS) will be a waste of taxpayer money.
The protesters will start the demonstration from the Aboabu school park through to the Asawase Police station to the Central Mosque and then to Asante Mampong Senior high school and a number of other routes before finally ending at the jubilee park. The demonstration has started from Aboabo Park with hundreds in attendance. The number keeps increasing as the group journey through the principal streets of the Garden City to demand the withdrawal of the EC’s decision to compile a new voters register.
