The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is expected to later today, June 29, 2020, address the nation ahead of the commencement of the compilation of a new voters’ register.
The Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin in a Facebook post said the time for the address will be communicated later.
“The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, will on Monday address the nation, ahead of the commencement of Tuesday’s voter registration exercise. The time for the address will be communicated in the course of the day,” he noted.
The compilation of the new voters’ register which starts on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, will be done in phases with eligible Ghanaians going to polling stations to register.
Based on the ruling of the Supreme Court last week, only a Ghanaian passport or Ghana Card will be admitted as proof of identification for the registration.
Over the weekend, the Electoral Commission (EC) released the list of centres for the planned voter registration exercise.
