The Electoral Commission (EC) says there are still minors and foreigners on the new voters’ register.

This was made known by the Chairperson of the Commission, Madam Jean Mensa at a press conference on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.

“The Commission is mindful of the infiltration of foreigners at a number of our registration centres. Additionally, we are aware that a number of minors have also found their way into the register,” Ms Mensa said.

The influx of foreigners on the old register was one of the many reasons proponents of the new register gave.

Jean Mensa announced that 16,963,306 persons had been registered onto the new voters’ register.

She said there were provisional figures pending processes of deduplication and adjudication.

It includes the 30,814 persons registered during the two-day mop-up registration exercise over the weekend.
