There is heavy security presence at the premises of the Electoral Commission where an Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting is currently underway.

Over 60 armed police men have been stationed at all entry and exit points.

Today’s meeting is to brief political parties on the Commission’s preparation towards the compilation of the new Electoral roll.

The biggest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), however, has been leading a front of opposition parties who are against the compilation.

The Coalition said there is no need for a new register and all the EC needs to do is to update the current one.

The EC, however, insists the Biometric Verification Devices (BVDs) and the entire Voter Management Solution must be changed.

While article 45 of the 1992 Constitution gives the power of compiling voters’ register to the EC, the NDC has sued them, arguing that Article 45 of the Constitution only gives the EC the power to compile the register once and revise it thereof.
