Pages 11 – 49 of the register did not appear. The EC has to resort to the use of the supplementary register as stated earlier. There is even instances where a Polling Station appeared twice on the list with only one register e.g. Obuoaky Electorate area at Kenyasi No. 1 (G041102) of the Asutifi North.
“Even with these lucky new registrants, you would find FO written against their names. We do not know whether FO means family or friends only”, Mr. Assanaba added
The party has called on the Electoral Commission to, as a matter of urgency, provide its leaders with a copy of the 2019 provisional voter roll, make available biometric verification devices to verify voters at the various exhibition centers and also exhibit the 2019 provisional voter register.
